I really enjoyed this book. Not just informative, but entertaining and easy to read. The book is factual, but entertaining in a telling that is akin to a storytelling. 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.

From the Hardcover edition. Great history on Stradivari. 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. 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. Collectors have paid many thousands of dollars for one of Stradivari’s violins.

The discussion about material, construction, and varnish are all very interesting and well explained. Blending history, biography, meticulous detective work, and an abiding passion for music, Faber embarks on an absorbing journey as he follows some of the stradivraius prized instruments of all time.

The Lipinski, the Viotti, the Messiah which almost never was playedthe Paganini and the Khevenhuller are the violins and their owners are followed and described in this book, and the Davidov, the cello currently owned and played on by YoYo Ma. The secrets that Stradivari took to his grave continue to confound makers of violins, cellos and violas sgradivarius.


This is perhaps the most important book ever published relating to the topics of violin making and the unchallenged greatest maker of all times.

Then there’s the Davidov cello, fashioned in and lovingly handed down through a succession of celebrated artists until, in the s, it passed into the capable hands of Yo-Yo Ma. Despite all that technology allows today, there are no instruments that produce the beautiful oivro of sound as beautifully as a Stradivari. 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.

Livro – Antonio Stradivari: His Life And Work (1644-1737)

It is a fast read. Leia mais Leia menos. This makes me buy this book. Under the quaint language is the information that subsequent scholars have stradivsrius as the basis of their understanding of Stradivari’s work and stolen for the basis of many of their own articles and booksand almost everything written in the book is still considered accurate–an unprecedented event in violin publishing, where there’s much more myth than fact in many books, especially those of the past, many of straidvarius are essentially fiction posing as non-fiction.

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. Why were his techniques not maintained by his successors? In this fascinating book, Toby Faber traces the stradivariua, multilayered stories of six of these peerless creations—five violins and a cello—and the one towering artist who brought them into being.
