About this book
“’Tis God gives skill, but not without men’s hands: He could not make Antonio Stradivari’s violins without Antonio.”–George EliotAntonio Stradivari (1644—1737) was a perfectionist whose single-minded pursuit of excellence changed the world of music. In the course of his long career in the northern Italian city of Cremona, he created more than a thousand stringed instruments; approximately six hundred survive. In this fascinating book, Toby Faber traces the rich, multilayered stories of six of these peerless instruments–five violins and a cello–and the one towering artist who brought them into being.Blending history, biography, meticulous detective work, and an abiding passion for music, Faber embarks on an absorbing journey as he follows some of the most prized instruments of all time. Mysteries and unanswered questions proliferate from the outset–starting with the enigma of Antonio Stradivari himself. What made this apparently unsophisticated craftsman so special? Why were his techniques not maintained by his successors? How is it that even two and a half centuries after his death, no one has succeeded in matching the purity, depth, and delicacy of a Stradivarius?In Faber’s illuminating narrative, each of the six fabled instruments becomes a character in its own right–a living entity cherished by artists, bought and sold by princes and plutocrats, coveted, collected, hidden, lost, copied, and occasionally played by a musician whose skill matches its maker’s.Here is the fabulous Viotti, named for the virtuoso who enchanted all Paris in the 1780s, only to fall foul of the French Revolution. Paganini supposedly made a pact with the devil to transform the art of the violin–and by the end of his life he owned eleven Strads. Then there’s the Davidov cello, fashioned in 1712 and lovingly handed down through a succession of celebrated artists until, in the 1980s, it passed into the capable hands of Yo-Yo Ma. From the salons of Vienna to the concert halls of New York, from the breakthroughs of Beethoven’s last quartets to the first phonographic recordings, Faber unfolds a narrative magnificent in its range and brilliant in its detail. “A great violin is alive,” said Yehudi Menuhin of his own Stradivarius. In the pages of this book, Faber invites us to share the life, the passion, the intrigue, and the incomparable beauty of the world’s most marvelous stringed instruments.From the Hardcover edition.

    Great instrument

    0 4/5 Banjoben777 - See all my reviews This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV500+92D Flamed 1-Piece Back Solid Wood Violin with Case, Tuner, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Bridge and Strings - Full Size (Electronics) I am a music major at Indiana State University who plays upright bass in orchestra, and was looking to expand my music knowledge to violin. To my surprise my parents picked this up for me. I attempted to tune it and the high e string broke. Not surprising. As a rule, ALWAYS put new string on an instrument right away. The strings it came with were old and low quality. Also be sure to clean the instrument. I was disturbed by the amount of filth that came off the finger board. When i was done with setting it up and such, the instrument i was left with was astounding. The sound and depth is very nice, and the finish is stunning. I'm very happy with it. The case is nice, but it did need to be cleaned. the bows are passable, the rosin..... buy new rosin. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, December 27, 2010

    You get what you pay for...

    So I've played violin for a very long time, but I've had a hiatus for nearly a decade. I figured it was a good time to get started again but I didn't want to pay a TON of $ to get going.After reading the reviews I figured I would give it a shot and I am satisfied... sort of.The Instrument: B- Pretty Good. The finish did look like it was rushed but It's a factory job so no biggie. The pegs ARE wood and didn't seem to slip too badly, The chin rest is a bit large - almost feels like a viola chinrest. The bridge was set up and the string on - yay! one less step I needed to do. The sound post is a bit too close to the tail piece but a luthier can fix that for a small fee. The sound is BIG and BRIGHTThe bows: C- In the violin world bows are like cars you can get a honda or a Ferrari... these are Yugos... perhaps Geos at best. They do work but they aren't weighted properly and make playing a bit heavy handed... but they get the job done.

    A couple minor things

    0 5/5 Chad (South Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mendini 4/4 MV500+92D Flamed 1-Piece Back Solid Wood Violin with Case, Tuner, Shoulder Rest, Bow, Rosin, Bridge and Strings - Full Size (Electronics) I am a student, not a professional but this violin has a couple of dings in it apparently from the factory.The bridge was indeed already installed and the strings tight which was a little worrisome but apparently didn't effect either.Ebony must be simply a description of the color because the materials used for the fingerboard, chin rest and tail piece are all different and none appear to be anything other than dyed wood (fingerboard) or nylon (plastic) or plastic for the tail piece and chin rest.That said, I can't comment on the rest of this item yet because I haven't had enough experience with it. I will update this review as needed.Update 5/28/11: My instructor can't keep his hands off this instrument. Not because it needs to be tuned constantly, quite the opposite, it holds it's tune for weeks and has really opened up in sound. He loves it and can't believe it was a cheap Chinese manufacture! Score one for bargain shopping! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, January 18, 2011

Stradivari Violin Bach Partita Manuscript Monogram Post-it® Notes

violin, violinist, violinmaker, stradivari,
An excerpt from the original music manuscript to the Third Partita in E major for solo violin, by Johann Sebastian Bach, is sufficiently lightened to allow messages on these notes to come through legibly. On the left side, a detailed view of a Stradivarius is displayed (and can be removed if desired); in the lower right corner, three initials are shown which are easily edited to suit or deleted altogether if preferred. What better way for a violinist to send notes (other than by playing his/her instrument)?
