Sounds of a Multi-Million Dollar Stradivarius Violin

A multi-million dollar Stradivarius violin doesn’t offer beautiful sound right away. At least not until the virtuoso violinist gets to know the instrument. Here, 24-year-old violinist Inmo Yang talks about his experience with the “Joachim Ma” violin made in 1714 by the world-renowned Italian violin maker Antonio Stradivari (Cremona, 1644-1737).

Listen to this brilliant musician tell you his amazing personal journey from how the sound of this violin was a mere scratch at first, then how the violin demanded to be played with delicacy on his D string, to finally how the Stradivarius can predict tomorrow’s weather just by listening attentively to its sound.
