A few days back, I reported on a concerto that was being written in memory of Wallace Hartley, the heroic leader of the Titanic orchestra who went down with the ship.
Now we read of another fine violinist who was drowned on the Costa Concordia. His name was Sandor Feher. He came from Budapest, was 38 years old and he loved nothing better than to teach children how to play an instrument.
May he rest in peace. Here’s a CBS News report.
UPDATE: According to his pianist, interviewed in the Budapest press, Sandor Feher died going back to fetch his violin.
