It is hard to imagine anything more beautiful than the sound of an aged musical instrument in the hands of a virtuoso musician. In this video we get to see the baroque concert guitarist Rolf Lislevand playing a Sabionari guitar that was built in 1679 by Antonio Stradivari, a craftsman of repute from Italy, who made violins, cellos, guitars and other stringed instruments. Stradivari is generally considered the most significant and greatest artisan in this field.

This Sabionari guitar built by Antonio Stradivari in 1679 is still in excellent condition and is one of the few guitars from that era that are regularly used today for musical activities. This guitar belongs to a private collection and is exhibited in the "Museo del Violino".

Watch the magnificent Swiss classical guitarist Rolf Lislevand play the most exquisite tune on this beautiful piece of craftsmanship and get transported to an era far gone.
