Restoring a Strad

Stradivarius stringed instruments are often considered the finest in the world, certainly the most expensive. Renowned cellist Bernard Greenhouse, longtime member of the Beaux Arts Trio, recently went through the painstaking process of allowing his beloved Stradivarius to be disassembled and restored - piece by piece. NPR's Rick Karr has the story.
