Antonio Stradivari, Violin, Maple, spruce, ebony, 1693
This Antonio Stradivari violin is the only one in existence that has been restored to its original Baroque form. Before modification to produce a louder, more brilliant tone and to extend the left-hand technique to higher positions, Baroque violins had gut strings, a short fingerboard, and a neck angled back only slightly from the body. Today, few fine violins show these original features.

(*quietly whispers* Ravel is hotter.)

I’m on Debussy’s side.

I mean, Ravel wrote a piano concerto for the left hand for a pianist who lost his arm during World War I.

I think I’m going to have to go Team Ravel.

You, sir, picked the right side.
