What’s in a name?
Today, violins by Bartolomeo Giuseppe Guarneri (1698-1744) are considered to have equaled and even surpassed those of his famous competitor, Antonio Stradivari, in desirability. Guarneri Hall is named in honor of this great craftsman, who produced some of the most miraculous musical instruments of all time.
