Lost and Found News | Violinist reunited with £2m violin!
Phillipe Quint, the unfortunate violinist, who lost his £2m 'loaned' violin has been reuinited with his instrument after good samaritan New York Taxi driver, Mohamed Khalil, handed it back. Mr Quint, the 34 year old Russian born player, was said to have wept with joy and relief after having his violoin returned. He gave the driver a £50. reward for his honesty and tickets to his next performance at Carnegie Hall. He proclaimed 'this violin is my life'. It seems Mr Quint is not the first musician to fall foul of the distraction of riding a taxi in the 'city that never sleeps'. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma left a £1.75m cello in the boot of a New York taxi back in 1999. Luckily for YoYo,Police recovered it a few hours later. It really does go to show that there are some very kind and decent people in the world, even in one of the toughest cities in America. LosersWeepers salutes you Mr Khalil.
Robert Napier ,of the Uk, only a week ago had left a £180,000 violin in the luggage rack of a train from London to Wiltshire. Lets hope he is as lucky as his fellow Losers and has an 'orchestral manouvre' with fate that puts the smile back on his face and the violin back under his chin!
