A 1684 Stradivarius Cello belonging to the LA Philharmonic was stolen last week. The instrument, which was used for the premiere of Dvorak’s cello concerto in 1896, is valued at $3.5 million.
If you have the instrument and are having second thoughts, you can leave it at the concert hall’s artists’ entrance “no questions asked” (surrrrrrrrre — I believe that).
