I have created a video documentary on the wood of the violin known as the 1716 "Messiah" Stradivarius, one of the most controversial violins ever to have existed.

 

The dendrochronological tests, with the multiple and significant cross-matches with the wood of other Stradivari instruments gives a true insight in the use of this wood, leaving

less room for controversies. (click on image to view this video)
