JONATHAN TALBOTT

The 4-string medieval fiddle was inspired by pictures by Hans Memling, and made in 1992 by Lyn Elder of California.

It can be heard on recordings by Ensemble Fortuna and Super Librum.

The pear-shaped 3-string rebec was made in 1998 also by Lyn Elder.

Rebec

Jonathan Talbott's instruments are all strung with equal tension, high tension sheep gut, without a trace of metal anywhere. This gives him the opportunity to create rich and vibrant musical colors that sound like the visual colors in Renaissance and Baroque painting.
