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.

    not really worth price

    0 3/5 poeticflowsinme - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stradivarius Violin Necklace (Jewelry) Honest review here. I received the necklace about a week ago. IIt came in a clear ziplock style bag. So it wasn't even packaged with a nice box the way most necklaces are. Then the necklace itself. Daughter received today. She likes it, but as an adult I can tell you its not worth the price. On the picture it looks 3-d. Like it is heavy. It's not. It's flat. It is basically just an image of a violin stamped on a very cheap type of metal. The necklace itself is very very cheap. Like the kind you can expect from a gumball machine. I'm just being honest. I gave 3 stars because like I said she does like it. But I will have to replace the necklace with something more durable and safe for her skin. In my opinion, the entire thing is cheap. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, December 25, 2013

    Not very good!

    0 1/5 S. Gates - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Stradivarius Violin Necklace (Jewelry) The clasp connects the charm to the chain is very soft. It opened up the first day my daughter tried the necklace on. Although we fixed it, I thought it is going to happen again. Three days later, I found the charm on the ground when we were watching a baseball game. Very bad design!The Chain was broken 2 days later. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, June 6, 2010

    A very lovely necklace

    I love this necklace and will be wearing it often! This necklace is just simply beautiful and well designed with lovely details. I have no trouble with the clasps, they are both sturdy and have not come apart on me yet. This necklace is the perfect gift for a violinist (or a person who just simply loves the violin), and you can even get a pair of matching earrings. I will be purchasing another one later for a fellow violinist's birthday and most likely will be getting the matching earrings for myself!This necklace is also a great conversation starter. The first day I wore it I had multiple people ask if I play the violin and I was able to meet other musicians in my community and local stores. It's always nice to meet other violinist and musicians; you never know who you might meet or inspire!Here is the link for the earrings:... 5/5 Rora - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The Princes Of Pawn: 16 Episodes Of The Popular Series, Not A Complete Season

    First things first. The third season of the popular History Channel program "Pawn Stars" is being listed here on Amazon as The Complete Season Three (as of 10/8/11). To clarify the contents of this 2 disc set, it is NOT the full season. It is being marketed as Volume Three not Season Three--just look at the DVD cover if you have any doubts. It is a bit misleading as both of the first two seasons were packaged and sold in their entirety, so if you bought one or both of them--you might be fooled into thinking this was similar. "Pawn Stars: Volume Three" consists of the first sixteen episodes of the year dubiously labeled as Fan Favorites (there were 28 episodes in the complete season). As a completist, this sales ploy is disheartening. If you want to release Season Three on DVD then release all of Season Three on DVD! Here are the titles included:(1) Trail Breaker, (2) Top Secret, (3) Whale of a Time, (4) Gold Diggers, (5) Aw Shucks!, (6) Deals From Hell, (7)... 4/5 K.
