"[In the 5th-8th works] Isserlis exchanges his 'Marquis de Corberon' Stradivarius for an instrument that was once played and heard in the trenches of Ypres. Harold Triggs, the owner of this so-called 'trench cello', brought it with him to Flanders from England--other soldiers, on both sides of the conflict, constructed their own violins, cellos or flutes on site, from ammunition boxes, pipes and whatever else they could get hold of. These instruments thus become a highly moving testimony to every man's need for beauty and solace and joy, even in the middle of a battlefield"--Publisher's website.
