Forensic experts have found evidence the first Stradivari may have actually been crafted by Harry Stradivari and not Antonio as we have been all led to believe. Not many (if any) people know or have ever heard about Antonio’s half brother Harry. Harry was a Luthier as well as Antonio but not as successful as so much in his name as Antonio. Although roomer has it that Antonio actually was jealous of Harry because in reality Harry was responsible for the Stradivarius violins sound and thus it’s fame! How Antonio managed to keep this a secret all this time is now baffling experts across the globe. Some believe Antonio’s mother favored him and didn’t much care for his half brother. Experts have uncovered fragments of a document which may have been written by Mrs. Stradivari that seems to mention “I Switcha da Violini”. Further forensic investigation is under way to determine the validity of the fragmented document.
Yes folks, don’t be surprised if during your renderings with the Strad a distinct, faint, high pitch Jerry Lewis sounding voice is heard screaming, “Harry!” in the upper registers
