A riveting documentary that follows superstar violinist Janine Jansen as she embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to record a new album on 12 Stradivari violins.
J & A Beare reveals the behind-the-scenes story of the 12 Stradivari recording in a new, award-winning documentary Falling for Stradivari, directed by BAFTA-winning director, Gerald Fox. The film follows Janine Jansen accompanied on the piano by Sir Antonio Pappano, as she faces the challenge of recording, in a very short time, 12 Stradivari violins for one single album.
