This is take 9 of the small famous segment from the Wintermärchen collection by Hungarian composer Alphons Czibulka, subsequently adapted as 'Hearts And Flowers' by Theodore Moses Tobiani, and more famously known as 'The world's smallest saddest violin'. This version is played one octave higher than the original, and has a descending glissando ending for comedic purposes. Well, just for a laugh, really. :) Some of these takes are a bit noisy due to my next-door neighbours inconveniently running their washing machine audibly on the other side of a very acoustically thin wall. As requested by Jcove91, performed by me on my 18th century German violin with no maker's label and a C.F. Durro composite material bow. Recorded with a Shure Beta 58A, M-Audio Firewire 410 sound card and Garageband on a 2 x 2.66 GHz Dual Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro running 10.6.2.
