Julian Lloyd Webber is selling his Stradmain
The international cellist, forced to retire last April with a neck injury, is putting his 1690s ‘Barjansky’ beauty up for sale.
On a UK tour of ‘An Evening with Julian Lloyd Webber’, he told the Birmingham Post: ‘It’s not really about the money. I don’t even have it with me at the moment, but the main thing about an instrument like that is that it needs to be played. The most criminal thing would be if it just ended up in a museum – I would just like to see it go to a good home and hear it played again.’
