Season 11 Episode 9 | 28m 29s

Built by Antonio Stradivari in 1720 and lost to history for over 200 years, perhaps no instrument holds as much allure and mystery as the Red Violin. On this episode, the instrument’s owner Elizabeth Pitcairn sits down for an interview with Barbara to discuss its creation and history. Pitcairn, a violin virtuoso, will play the instrument for three performance pieces you won’t want to miss.
