She played the "Harrison" Strad from 1967 to 1985. She played the "Rode" del Gesu in 1999, according to Cozio.com. If the video was from before 1985 it would be the Strad I guess, and if after 1999 it would be the del Gesu.

In the second part of the concert (video 2) it's even more evident that the violin is not a Stradivarius. Even the F-holes look very much like the ones you could expect on a GdG (from what I have seen on posters and images of various GdG violins).

I read that she owned 2 GdG (the other one being the ex-kubelik)

By the way, if one is to believe what is written on Wikipedia, she was obviously the object of some "sexist" treatments when she was a young students. this however didn't stop her being acclaimed together with Zuckerman in one violin contest so that they were both declared winners.

I only recently started listening to her and the more I watch or hear, the more I like. For some reason when I watch her in video I find myself fixated on her bowing....just looks so effortless and easy :)

Just saw this post in passing:

cozio.com records her owning the 1735 Kubelik del Gesu from the 1970's (it doesn't say she disposed of it or mention anyone who has owned it since.)
