During the late 17th and early 18th centuries, two violinmakers from the same small town were making the most sought-after violins ever created. Everyone has heard of Antonio Stradivari, but few know the name Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesu. This documentary tells the story of these two violin masters and why the stringed instruments they sculpted 300 years ago are worth millions of dollars to musicians and collectors today.

So much excellent information. I had to watch it twice to absorb it all.

I play the violin so watching this makes me want to pick up my violin and play! The music in the back round was beautiful and the history of these two master violin makers was amazing. I have to say I didn't know much about these two men but I've come away watching this documentary completely mesmerized about the craft of violin making.
