The four members of the Chiaroscuro Quartet discuss their latest Haydn CD and we examine the 1708 ‘Dancla’ Stradivari violin. There’s an analysis of vibrato and a tribute to bow maker and author Bernard Millant, who died in April. Plus interviews with Jordi Savall, Paul Neubauer, Paul Katz and Maxim Rysanov among others.

We talk to the Doric Quartet about bows and recordings, and get tips on making arrangements of non-classical works. Anne-Sophie Mutter tells us her Sentimental Work there’s a Beethoven Masterclass and we look back on Henryk Szeryng’s playing career. Plus, the fall and rise of violin making in Hungary.
One of The Strad’s most popular posters is now available with brand new artwork showing the 1741 ‘Kochanski’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ in all its glory.
