The Strad Magazine July 2017 *Back Issue*

  • £2.50


The Strad July 2017 issue is on sale now, in which UK period ensemble the Chiaroscuro Quartet discusses the evergreen appeal of Haydn's op.20 'Sun' quartets and the dawn of the string quartet genre in conversation with Helen Wallace.

Elsewhere in the issue, Alberto Giordano examines the 1708 'Dancla' Stradivari, while Rudolf Hopfner gives an inside view of the 'golden period' instrument through micro-CT scans; friends and colleagues offer their tributes to world-renowned French bow maker, dealer, author and expert Bernard Millant, who died earlier this year; and new research by Rebecca MacLeod and John Geringer questions the accepted views on vibrato pitch centre.
