“Reconstruction and/or repair of old instruments”: Panel discussion with instrument makers Bergljot Hedda Lunde (violin), Oddrun Hegge (violin and langeleik),  Corwen Broch (early Northern European instruments), and Thilo Viehrig (violin, historical instruments). Topics that will be debated: When does a repair become a falsification? How much is destroyed during a restoration? When is it more sensible to build a reconstruction rather than repair an old instrument?
