German Violins

NPR's Emily Harris reports from the Bavarian town of Mittenwald, where German craftsmen are continuing a centuries-old tradition of violin making. There's a bit of a feud going on between craftsmen trying to recreate the sound of the great Stradivarius instruments and those who say the Stradivarius sound is outmoded.
