In Autumn 2019, I had been on the look out for an instrument for quite some time. Having tried many instruments, old and new, at various luthiers and dealers in London and Copenhagen, one day I got to try Noémie’s new cello. The first thing that struck me was that it felt very comfortable to play. It has a great bass and an A-string that sings beautifully. I tried it in a concert hall, comparing it to old master instruments by Grancino, Testore and Tecchler and found that already then, it could compete with these great instruments. Built with supreme craft(wo)manship, this instrument already has many wonderful sound qualities, and I believe it has the potential of becoming a top instrument.
