This outstanding project was realised by Brigitte Brandmair and Peter-Stefan Greiner. It was greatly supported by violin dealers and experts, directors and curators of various instrument collections, private instrument owners as well as participating scientific institutions.
The book is arranged in three sections. The research results of Brandmair and Greiner are presented in this book in the articles “The Build-up of Layers in Stradivaris Varnish” by Stefan-Peter Greiner (41 pages) and “Foundations of Classical Cremonese Violin Varnishes” by Brigitte Brandmair (91 pages).
The third section presents a pictures circle of 219 pages. Displayed are twenty-one outstanding instruments expertly shot by the photographer Jan Röhrmann. They are presented in chronological order to provide a representative cross-section of Antonio Stradivaris work, whereas the first instrument is a Nicolò Amati and the last one a Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù.
