Sad news: Death of a formidable French luthiermain
The death has been communicated of Bernard Millant, owner of one of the most respected Paris ateliers for stringed instruments and, especially, bows. Players pay up to $14,000 at auction for one of his bows.
He co-wrote the definitive book on French bows, L’Archet (2000).
Bernard was 87. Rue de Rome will never seem the same.
