Salt Lake City, UT – There's always been a mystique surrounding the most famous of Italian violins, those crafted by Antonio Stradivari 300 years ago. For centuries, scientists and violin makers have tried to duplicate the excellence of his craftsmanship, without success. Some of the finest young classical violinists in the world are gathering in Utah this week to play these violins.
