"Highly Strung" A story of passion...of obsession...and possession A journey into a rarefied world of elusive tones evoked by horsehair on catgut, of investors lured to spend millions on unique instruments. The deadly sins of lust, jealousy and greed jostle with the purity of philanthropy and sonic perfection. A duel of tension and harmony in a Quartet of youthful virtuosi expanding their skills on a clutch of rare Guadagninis. An exploration of the mystery and the lost, delicate art of constructing these robust masterpieces Exquisite imagery will illuminate a complex history of enduring instruments and their temporary custodians. And then there's the music!Written by
I thought for the person interested in music, this was fascinating, an average person isn't aware of things like this. Anyone that criticizes this movie is probably just jealous or doesn't really get it. What a wonderful thing to do, for someone to bring together four Guadagninis instruments that may be the first time in 200 years and then being played together, it's just hard to comprehend, the powerful things that kind philanthropy can do for others. I would never be able to hear or see something like this in my lifetime if it were not for people that do things like this. It also shows how youth can be wasted on the young, what an opportunity and honor, that is given up, but you have to watch the movie to understand. I appreciate being able to see and hear this music on these very old and valuable instruments, even if only in a movie. Thank-you
