        Benoit Rolland, Bow Maker | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2012 MacArthur Fellow Benoît Rolland talks about reclaiming historical craftsmanship and using traditional techniques as inspiration for innovative designs. Rolland is a master bow maker who is experimenting with new designs and materials to create violin, viola, and cello bows for the twenty-first century. As a talented violinist who undertook rigorous training steeped in the tradition of nineteenth-century bow design, Rolland brings a unique perspective and keen understanding of musicianship to his work. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
