The Soil is strikingly handsome and this 1714 Stradivari has had more experience on the concert platform that almost any other violin. Played by Itzhak Perlman, the Soil is widely considered to be the best sounding Stradivari ever created. Other owners of this iconic instrument are French luthier and collector Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume and Yehudi Menuhin. The beauty of the violin is found in its extravagant maple wood figure which is illuminated and partly covered by Stradivari's greatest varnish.
