LONDON 〓 Missed violin, again in the hands of Steven Morris


The violin of the British violinist Stephen Morris, who had been left on the train and was missing since October 22, returned to him on the night of November 1. The British Transportation Police released a picture of a youth who got off the train on October 28 with the violin.

After then, Morris was contacted from a youth. In the evening he received violin at Beckenham’s parking area. The policeman was also present, but after receiving an apology from the youth and the violin being reinstated, the police said that they did nothing more.

According to a British report, the misplaced violin was produced in 1709 by David Tecchler, an Italian-Rome master. The market value is said to be worth 250,000 pounds. On the 22nd, Morris boarded a train with his bicycle from Victoria Station in London, and got off at Penge East Station. He noticed that he had left a violin in the train on a bicycle and reported it to the police.

Morris is a famous freelance player who has recorded the film music such as “007” series and “Lord of the Rings”, and played with great musicians such as David Bowie and Stevie Wonder. Last weekend, he was the concertmaster of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Andrea Bocelli’s performance, and he played with a instrument from his wife, a violinist.
