Episode 140 - Music in the Canon, Part 2: Musicians, Instruments, and Venues

“Let us escape from this weary workaday world by the side door of music.” [RETI] 

Sherlock Holmes took a great interest in musicians and concerts, mentioning a few by name in the Canon.

In the last episode, we discussed composers and their works; this time, it's off to violin-land where all is sweetness and light. We look at performers real and fictional, where they plied their trade, and what instruments they played, including musical families. It's just a Trifle.
