Heng Ching Fang says a few words about her instrument:

I have been enjoying Mr. Besson’s Viola since 2004. It is a lovely instrument with even and sweet sound. I have been using it to make several recordings and concert events. Mr. Besson’s viola never let me down. It allows me to deliver musical expressions and emotions. It’s a great joy to own such a wonderful instrument.
