Leila Waddell's "Thelema: A Tone Testament" for violin
I wondered if anyone had done this (published in Equinox I,8), and found Phil Legard's version for violin here - very lovely! At last it has a sound (for those of us who don't hear music when we read it):
Very interesting, cheers! Concerning the quality of the music, I believe the technical British term is: nice.
A while back I actually found a better rendition of the piece, which can be heard here : http://www.oneirophant.com/b/topic/music/violin/
The YouTube one is computer generated, where as the one posted above is played by a very experienced violin player.
While we are on the subject, I have spent quite a bit of time trying to find out which exact violin Leila Waddell played during The Rites of Eleusis. Her uncle was a notable collector of violins, and I know that he owned both a Stradivarius and Guarnarius violin, amongst many others. I can vaguely recall someone telling me that Ms Waddell was playing a Guarnarius at Caxton Hall, but I can find no source. So any help would be most appreciated! If it is true, I have a record of which exact violin it would have been (if, as is likely, it belonged to her uncle in Scotland who was a wealthy private collector), and it was a particularly famous one.
My fiance' has this photo. I examined it and it appears to be an original. Very old indeed.
Note, that Waddle has no tattoo.
What year do you think it was taken?
