In 1980 this rare Ames Stradivarius violin was stolen from violinist Roman Totenberg, and it was missing for years. In 2015, two years after Totenberg died, the instrument was found and has now been lovingly restored. Today, March 13, violinist Mira Wang, a Chinese immigrant and former student of Totenberg, will play the instrument in a private concert.
Restored Ames Stradivarius violin will be played today in NYC
