It is also about playing on the great violins- from Stradivari to del Gesu.about making music globally as a concertmaster, chamber musician and soloist...about teaching at numerous universities and conservatories and about the machinations, politics, and fate which fiddled with Steven Staryk's life and career. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the world of classical music, its institutions and its personalities.
