A leading violinist is robbed in Paris

The violinist and conductor Julien Chauvin has put out an appeal for the recovery of instruments that were stolen from him yesterday in Paris.

Julien, founder of  Le Cercle de l’Harmonie and Concert de la Loge Olympique, issued the following message:




My violin was stolen this morning
Giuseppe Rocca 1839
And Marie’s viola
Yair Hod Fainas 
Many bows including these

Please be aware and forward largely!!!

  • Jonathan Dunsby says:

    Presumably he still has the Stainer:

    “Julien Chauvin plays a Baroque violin by Jacob Stainer from 1670 (formerly the ex-Mozart-Wranitzki), on loan from a patron of the arts, and a Romantic violin by Giuseppe Rocca from 1839, in the framework of the ‘Adopt-a-Musician’ project”
