The concert violinist Eric Grossman performs the chaconne from the Partita no. 2 in D Minor by J. S. Bach (1685 - 1750) on a violin made by Antonio Stradivari in 1717. The instrument — one of three by Stradivari in the Metropolitan Museum's collection — is named "The Antonius" and comes from Stradivari's so-called golden period (about 1700 to 1720).
