Theft alert: Precious violin stolen in Londonmain
From Krysia Osostowicz, 1st violin of the Dante Quartet and professor at the Guildhall:
Last night at 7pm my violin was stolen from outside Brixton tube station while I was unlocking my bike.
The violin is by Francesco Goffriller, but not labelled and is in an oblong brown Gewa case along with three bows: a Voirin, a Tubbs and an Ouchard.
The case contains a Kun shoulder rest and Melos rosin. The zip compartment has no music but one A4 sheet of handwritten paper.
As you can imagine, I am desperate to recover my violin and bows. Please share this with all your musician friends and colleagues and if you come across it please contact me on 07976755082 or 07917261441 (a reward is offered). PLEASE SHARE!
UPDATE: A swift and happy ending.
