Prague Sketchbook - Violinist
I didn't see any violinists in Prague but I say at least three different street violinists in Vienna. Usually I have seen street musicians who are busking with acoustic guitars, drums or wind instruments but I have rarely seen violinists. At least i HAD rarely seen violinists. Actually right here in Korea, in Insadong, there is a violinist whenever I visit that neighborhood during the weekends. For some strange reason, whenever I see violinists I get a mixed sense of loneliness and sadness. Maybe it's from the type of music that the musicians typically play, but whenever I hear a violin I hear the string crying. Sometimes I get really creeped out whenever they bring violins into a horror film. It makes my hair stand on its end!
