From the Hardcover edition. There is simply no reason not to own this book if you are interested in violins. This book traces Antonio Stradivari’s life, that of his children, and more importantly, the journeys made by 5 violins and 1 cello made by him.

The Hills are the most respected scholars, ever, of the violin, and this was a landmark publication in and remains so.

Mysteries and unanswered questions proliferate from the outset-starting with the enigma of Antonio Stradivari himself.

What made this apparently unsophisticated craftsman so special? Paganini supposedly made a pact with the devil to transform the art ofthe violin-and by the end of his life he owned eleven Strads. 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, their quality unequalled by any subsequent violin-maker. I really enjoyed this book.


It contains a short but thorough especially considering how little is known about the early life of Stradivari biography and explanations of the violin making process before delving into the history of 6 particular instruments.

Despite all that technology allows today, there are no instruments that produce the beautiful depth of sound as beautifully as a Stradivari. I think I would have preferred that the history be divided into chapters that followed each individual instrument rather than an interweaving of all their stories together.

Old print copies were very interesting. The incomparable visual beauty of his instruments dtradivarius the infinite variety and magnificence of tone of which they are capable have by this time passed into the realm of legend. If you are reading this book casually or among several other books it is easy to forget something that occurred two chapters ago that now has stradivsrius direct correlation to the instrument which you are now following.


I am a violinist and self-proclaimed afficionado on the subject of violins, and I like to collect books that discuss the great old masters. I am still trying to add to my collection, but many books on the subject are out of print and very expensive, As far as my order was concerned, it was expedited quickly and I got a brand new edition.
