These recordings are to demonstrate the power that an Alvin Fry violin can achieve. These 5 recordings are from a Nov. 7, 2014 test in Boston Ma. in Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory, seating capacity 1038. The purpose of this demonstration is to determine the consistency of tone and establishing that tone as equal to that of a grand piano, with the lid fully raised, in power and richness. These 4 instruments were randomly chosen from the 8 violins Alvin Fry had completed at the time of the demonstration.
This demonstration was with Mr. Chi Li's historical violin and 4 violins from Alvin Fry's workbench. The Fry violins were constructed in the last 6 months before the demonstration and played not more than 6 hours in that 6 months. The violins and piano were played in the traditional concert position at center stage and the piano lid was fully raised. The recording device is a portable recording unit with a condenser mike in the center of the hall and no equalization adjustments were made. The violinist was Chi Li, winner 2012: International Maurice Ravel Music Academy – Grand Prize
