In the Balkan forests, one might find maple trees worth their weight in gold. This magical wood could create a priceless musical instrument; a violin as prestigious as an original Stradivarius.

Gaspar Borchardt, a violin maker, is on this mission since he biked through Bosnia in his twenties and found the most perfect tree he has ever seen. He couldn’t bring the wood back then but will find it again now and create this instrument for the world-famous violinist Janine Jensen.

The Quest for Tonewood is a treasure hunt and a human adventure in the world of classical music.
