Bad air day: Lufthansa confiscates violamain
Sey Cheon, deputy principal viola at Finnish National Opera, tells us:
Lufthansa took away my viola at the gate in Helsinki. The viola will be coming out on the baggage belt (on arrival). This is not okay. Cold temperature shrinks peg, unravelling strings, causing low tension. I don’t know if my sound post stayed in same place.
Just another day in the life of a high-flying art form.
