"I’ve got one of those bucket lists. I want to drive a race car. I wanted to join the Air Force, but that was just so I could jump out of an airplane, with a parachute— but not from too high though. Just medium high. I also want to go up in a balloon, because that looks fun. And also I want to do that thing where you’re holding onto that kite-looking-thing while it goes through the air. Then I want to catch one of those big fish with the thing coming out of its nose, where they have to strap you to a chair so you can reel it in. My friend says I’m too old for that, but I think I can do it."

Naomi Elishuv had played for a number of orchestras, including Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, but was forced to stop performing professionally two decades ago when she began suffering from a condition called essential tremor. During the procedure which was performed under local anaesthetic, surgeons asked Elishuv to play so her brain was active. The footage shows Elishuv shaking and struggling to play the violin before she is wheeled into surgery. Surgeons are then seen operating on her brain behind a huge plastic curtain. As soon as the procedure is complete, the violinist’s hands become steady, and she is able to play unhindered for the first time in 20 years.

We recently had the opportunity to examine a manuscript of Johann Sebastian Bach under a microscope capable of capturing images. Fascinating details emerge at high magnification, revealing individual ink particles in the middle image, and the densely woven network of paper fibers visible below.

Bach, Johann Sebastian, 1685-1750. Canon a 4 voc: perpetuo. A.MS.s.; Weimar, 2 Aug 1713.

MS Eng 870 (35B)

Houghton Library, Harvard University
