This instrument is being made by a famous master violin maker, whose instruments are played by leading soloists and approved as "as good as my Petrus Guarneri" by Nigel Kennedy.
The Patrick Matthew instrument has been specially commissioned by Dr Mike Sutton to celebrate the great Scottish Enlightenment science hero and original author of the theory Darwin and Wallace stole with the help of Darwin's powerful pals.
