    Violin: Gragnani 1778

    I would like to thank Nigel and The Stradivari Trust for making it possible for me to work towards owning this beautiful instrument, which has survived in exquisite condition since it was made in the seaside town of Livorno in the 18th century. Thanks to them, I feel I have finally found my voice.
