“We were fortunate to attend a concert played on that violin by a 15-year-old prodigy, Clarissa Bevilacqua…. It is an electrifying experience to hear the precision and richness of the sound of the ‘Vesuvius’ coming from the hands of such a young performer. The old and the young intersected in one magic moment.”
