Multi-million dollar violin comes to Sarasota

Vadim Gluzman and his famous Strad
Rockers drool over vintage Fender Stratocasters and Gibson Les Pauls.

Those beautiful guitars built last century sell for as much as maybe $200,000.

But they don't quite compare with the history and monetary value of what world-class violinist Vadim Gluzman will play this weekend when he joins the Sarasota Orchestra for the organization's Masterworks: Virtuoso program.

Gluzman's Stradivarius was built in 1690.

It could be worth as much as $8 million.

For more information about the famous fiddle (and the man who plays it) read "Masterworks opens with world-class violinist."
