At the beginning of autumn, school term is starting and thousands of children in Sweden are going to be picking up a musical instrument for the first time. And then, in a few years, hopefully passing it on to the next generation.

And some of the violins in Stockholm's school system are a hundred years old. For this week's Friday interview Radio Sweden spoke to one of the people who makes sure that the instruments will survive another school term, Philippe Dormond at Stockholm's Kulturskolan.

The school has about 5,000 instruments out on loan every term. What does a normal day look like for him?
