Alert: Violin lost on a train in Cologne

A student from one of the Baltic states is distraught at the loss of her instrument, a ’Pietro Grulli’ full sized violin and two bows (‘Stephan Kuhnla’ and a ‘Voirin’ copy). They were left last night on a train in Cologne, Germany. If you have any information, please contact 015120178073.

  1. It would be good to post this on as there are many violinmakers who would see it there, should someone try and sell it

  2. My wife left her instrument on a train near Cologne. She immediately registered a lost and found report with the Bundesbahn. A (train) conductor found the instrument and it was returned to her a couple days later. Remembering the sadness and stress we felt, I wish the student every success in having her instrument returned.

    I wonder what is distracting violinists upon arrival in Cologne. A fiddler myself, I do remember the shoe shops there were enticing, couldn’t wait to hit them. (I know, shallow.)
    (I hope her instrument turns up pronto for her.)
