The OHMI Trust Interview with Christian Tetzlaff
On 27th September 2011, The One-Handed Musical Instrument'OHMI' Trust founder, Stephen Hetherington had the privilege of interviewing the renowned violinist, Christian Tetzlaff. They discussed the OHMI challenge and the nature of musical instruments. The interview took place at Symphony Hall in Birmingham, where Christian had been rehearsing for a concert with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
There is presently no orchestral musical instrument than can be played with one hand. As a result hundreds of thousands of people with disabilities in the UK, and millions across the world, are excluded from music making.
The One-Handed Musical Instrument Trust are working to create new instruments to open full and undifferentiated participation in musical life; whether at school, in the home, or in a professional ensemble. Our success will have a profound impact not just on individuals but on society's relationship with disability, opening new realms of achievement and possibility.
