Frank Almond and the Lipinski Strad
I am way, way behind everyone else in the musical blogosphere in mentioning last week's post-concert assault on violinist Frank Almond and the theft of the Lipinski Strad, which had been on loan to Almond for several years. There have been arrests in the case, and today the Times is reporting that the violin may have been located. I believe I have read that Mr. Almond is recovering well from the assault; best wishes to him, and I hope the violin is safely returned to Mr. Almond and its owner.
