With help from Swiss experts, world-renowned musician Lyndon Watts sought to feature his instrument and resurrect one of the greatest models ever made: the legendary Savary bassoon, once considered the “Stradivarius of bassoons”.

Thanks to a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation, Watts and instrument maker Walter Bassetto worked together for months to bring the Savary bassoon back to life, based on a few remaining examples of the original instrument. (Raffaella Rossello, swissinfo.ch)
