What makes Stradivarius violins so special? Made by Antonio Stradivari and his family, these instruments are among the most valuable violins in the world, highly regarded by performers and audiences. Take a look at pictures from the Stradivarius exhibition at Oxford's Ashmolean museum, uncovering the beauty of these musical works of art.
They're regarded as some of the finest stringed instruments ever created, apparently possessing a sweet tone and superior sound quality. Despite this, blind listening tests have never demonstrated Stradivarius instruments are any better than other high-quality instruments, so their legendary status still remains a bit a mystery - it's no wonder the instruments are still fascinating for music-lovers throughout the world.
