Published in May 1890, the first issue of The Strad featured Joseph Joachim, the violinist to whom Brahms dedicated his Concerto. Since then, players such as Mstislav Rostropovich, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mischa Maisky and many more besides have brought their insight and expertise to the pages of the magazine. The Strad is an indispensible guide for string players, teachers and instrument makers alike, featuring expert advice and practical guidance each month from celebrated luthiers working with traditional techniques and the latest technological advances. Authoritative, trusted and influential, The Strad is available in print and digital editions.
