Notes:

"Sarasate's Stradivari, made in 1724, stands apart by itself in both tone and style; and all who have listened to this delightful master of the art of coaxing forth pure and beautiful tone must have been struck by the ethereal and sparkling quality of his "Strad"- never sonorous, yet always clear and distinct, even when passages of the most extreme rapidity and delicacy are being rendered on it."
