In a special edition to mark The Strad’s 125th anniversary, we look through the photo archives for some of the highlights of the past 13 decades. We examine how the dawn of recording influenced string playing, pay tribute to New York violinist David Nadien and examine possibly the world’s oldest cello: the Andrea Amati ‘King’.
