Maxim Vengerov @maxim.vengerov performs Ravel's Tzigane on the 1727 "Kreutzer" Stradivarius. Vengerov has been performing on this violin since 1998.
Here, Vengerov performs at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in 2016.
The "Kreutzer" was sold in 1998 at Christie's @christiesinc for £947,500 - the highest price paid for a stringed instrument at that time. The violin was bought by Haim Lazarov, a former violinist and dealer based in London, after furious bidding at the South Kensington branch of the auction house Christie's.
The "Kreutzer" is named after the French violinist, Rudolphe Kreutzer, whom Beethoven dedicated his violin sonata no.9, Op. 47 to, although Kreutzer never played the work.
After the sale Mr Lazarov said: "This violin will soon be heard all over the world."
