The Genius of Antonio Stradivari by Toby Faber
The Arts Society Abingdon is holding its monthly lecture on Wednesday 16th October 2019, 10.30am and 2.00pm, at Trinity Church, Conduit Road, Abingdon, OX14 1DB.


The Genius of Antonio Stradivari – Toby Faber
After Antonio Stradivari’s death two hundred and fifty years ago, his violins and cellos remain the most highly prized instruments in the world. Loved by great musicians and capable of fetching fabulous sums when sold, their tone and beauty are legendary - no one has succeeded in matching them. Based on his book, this lecture explores that mystery within a story that the New York Times described as ‘more enthralling than any fiction could be’.
Non-Members welcome, £6.00. The lectures are one hour long, but leave extra time for announcements etc.
