3. Dubeau's Stradivarius
Dubeau played her first concert with her Stradivarius 'Des Rosiers' in 1977. The Des Rosiers family lived in Lyon and owned the violin for more than a century before it became Dubeau's. She, for her part, has nicknamed her violin 'Arthur', as a tribute to the owner of the violin immediately before her.
