Euterpe was the Ancient Greek muse for music. Col legno is a violin musical term for "playing with the wood” - i.e. the back of the bow. I saw an old picture of a similar piece from 70 years ago. I decided to give it a try, making a few design changes and giving it a name. I like this is an unusual piece.
