US violinist gets hold of another Strad

The enterprising Chicago violinist Rachel Barton Pine has acquired a 1732 Stradivarius violin for her Foundation, which loans out fine instruments to up-and-coming soloists.

The ‘Arkwright Lady Rebecca Sylvan’ Strad came to Rachel as a gift from retired New Mexico music professor Joseph Sylvan, who inherited it from his father.

Rachel herself plays a 1742 Guarnerius. Her foundation has helped more than 70 artists.
