The soul of the violin
The king of the instruments, seen by its performers
This film tells the fascinating and incredible story of the violin: its life, its past, how it travelled through Europe (Cremona, London, Paris), in the past and today.
The violin's world always fascinated us because it is the reflection of our deepest emotions: Joy, pain, life and death...
This film puts into words those emotions with the testimony of the artists: Yehudi Menuhin, Pierre Amoyal, Ivry Gitlis and also the violin maker Etienne Vatelot...
