Last week I visited Ralf Winkelmann, one of the nicest people I know. He is a German guitarist, teacher and organizer of a concert series. His last project was composing music for Frederick, a production of das Bremer Figurentheater of which he is playing a small part in this ‘candid camera’ video.
Otto Vowinkel is a household name in the classical guitar world; a renowned luthier with customers all over the world.
His instruments are physically light, easy to play, ultra-responsive and very powerful. His guitars have outstanding tonal qualities, evenness in sound colour and a perfect intonation.
Otto blogs about making guitars, guitarists who play his instruments, festivals he visits and ‘his’ guitar series Meesters op de Gitaar. He also writes about guitar maintenance.
