When many of us think of precious objects, it is often the largest gems or the most famous paintings that come to mind. But certain rare violins inspire the same awe - and command the same astronomical prices - as these other treasures. VOA's Adam Phillips tells us about one particular violin's pride of place in the rarified world of high-end stringed instruments.

I got to play a Stradivarius violin and then a fiddle once owned by Tommy Jarrell, that has a rattlesnake rattle in it. Guess which one I liked better.

Can you pick the Stradivarius in our audio clip of six violins? The Strad's first Strad Sunday on 12 April 2015 featured an informal blind test of six violins on the Barbican concert stage, each played by London Symphony Orchestra leader Roman Simovic. In random order, these were: Simovic’s own 1709 Stradivarius; an 1850 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume; a 1923 Giuseppe Fiorini; a contemporary Del Gesù copy by London-based maker Philip Ihle; a Mirecourt French trade violin c1900, worth around £1,000; and an 1835 A.S.P. Bernardel. The audience, who were unaware which instrument was which, voted overwhelmingly in preference of the Stradivarius, with Ihle's instrument coming second. Listen to the clip to see if you, too, can pick the Strad.

An incredibly rare violin that hasn't been seen for decades will soon be auctioned off. It's estimated to bring up to 10 million dollars. An incredibly rare violin that hasn't been seen for decades will soon be auctioned off. It's estimated to bring up to 10 million dollars. Part of the reason it's expected to sell for so much is that it was crafted by legendary violin maker Antonio Stradivari in 1731. Another is it was originally owned by renowned concert violinist and teacher Rodolphe Kreutzer - hence the instrument's name, the Kreutzer Stradivarius. So, where has it been for the last 25 years? Well, apparently it's been sitting in a closet. The violin's most recent owner is heiress Huguette Clark, who was given the violin by her parents in 1920. As she was notably reclusive, much of her personal life remains a mystery, but throughout her seemingly troubled life she did amass quite a collection of fabulous items. About 400 of them are being auctioned off, but the one getting the serious attention is the Kreutzer Stradivarius. Christie's, the house in charge of its sale, has run tests on the instrument and confirmed that it's authentic.
