The World's Greatest Music
Turning a violin from a humble block of wood into the perfectly balanced instrument we are all so familiar with takes a superb craftsman. Sit back and admire their exquisite work.
Luthier Matthias Vorbrodt puts the bridge on a violin in his workshop in Germany. The bridge is central to the violin’s performance. Antoni Ruschil told us: "Setting it is an exact art, as it must stand equidistant between the sound holes, determining the tension of the string and setting the height from the fingerboard. It's an important job for something that weighs 1.9 grams." Picture: Photo: Alexandra Koerner
