Anton Sie, twice successful in achieving his aspirations in music and physics, demonstrates that focus and diligent hard work can achieve great goals. But his story also shows the inter-connectedness of humanity: Anton received his musical training in Indonesia from a virtually illiterate Muslim peasant guitarist and a Jewish refugee violinist, and his knowledge of physics and acoustics from Chinese Communist scientists. He has demonstrated a critical factor in the superior construction of Stradivarius violins, his work authenticated by Western musicians for whom he is very grateful.
