After an extended break thanks to the ongoing legal proceedings related to the Lipiński Stradivarius theft, Milwaukee Symphony concertmaster Frank Almond is back to blogging at his Inside The Arts blog, non divisi. His welcome back post announces a new Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a second volume in a series of recordings featuring the Lipiński Strad and after only a few days, he’s a quarter of the way toward the $15,000 goal.
In what may be one of the most understated tag lines yet for a Kickstarter album project, Almond opts to soft sell via the project’s description.
“After the spectacular success of A Violin’s Life (and all the drama that followed), we’re ready to record Vol. 2”
