In 2002, Hungarian violinist Barnabas Kelemen won the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis, a prestigious contest held once every four years. The prizes included $30,000, a gold medal and a four-year loan of a 1683 Stradivarius violin. As he approaches the end of his loan, he joins NPR's Fred Child to perform two Paganini Caprices and to talk about his search for a new violin.
