Program notes

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.

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...
