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 Gesω. 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.

Comments about PBS Violin Masters: Two Gentlemen of Cremona DVD:

I loved seeing the locations of where the 2 masters made their violins. Knowing that the 2 men worked in studios close to each other and how their lives differed was interesting.

The comparison of their instruments was well done with performances on the actual violins and comments of the musicians about choosing one or the other for certain pieces.

The narrative moves along and would probably hold the interest of teenage string players.
