JANINE JANSON AND THE 12 STRADS
An unmissable, riveting documentary that will follow superstar violinist, Janine Jansen, as she embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record a new album on twelve of the greatest ever “Strads”.
Following Janine fly-on-the-wall in London, the camera will accompany her at every step to rehearse and record this astonishing album - all in a hectic ten day period in November. Interweaving though Janine’s story, we trace the stunning history of the Stradivarius as an emblem of affluence, ambition and power, continuing to explore the Strad’s ever-growing mastery through archive footage of some of the finest luminaries ever. We will then bring the Stradivarius story into the modern age, exploring the growing worldwide demand and exponential price explosions of these violins - particularly in the far East and China - to take up the mantel of this extraordinary legacy.
