The 2015 Strad Caalendar marks The Strad's 125th anniversary by celebrating two of the greatest makers who ever lived: Antonio Stradivari and Giuseppe Guarneri 'del Gesú'. Each of the featured violins is a top player's principal performing instrument, and they include six from Stradivari's 'golden period'.
The instruments include the 'Vieuxtemps' Guarneri, currently the most expensive violin in the world; the 'Lipiński' Stradivari, sensationally stolen in early 2014 and then recovered; the 'Lord Dunn-Raven' Stradivari, once played by David Oistrakh and now owned by Anne-Sophie Mutter; and the beautiful 'Soldat' Guarneri, played by Rachel Barton Pine.
