Messiah. This violin dates from Stradivari's 'Golden Period' of about 1700-1720. He was then at the height of his powers and had developed an ideal size and shape for making instruments. This violin owes its fame chiefly to its fresh appearance. Because it has been owned mostly by collectors and not by professional players, it has not been exposed to the wear and tear of frequent playing.
