Descrizione dello strumento:
A very fine instrument made by Stephan von Baehr 2005, after a model of A. Guarneri, 41.5 cm, and my two bows were taken from a train, probably at Milano Centrale around 19:00 on August 27th. They were in a shaped black BAM case with floral design and an additional black soft cover with two stickers: "Hanns Eisler Hochschule für Musik Berlin" and "Chamber Orchestra of Europe". The Maline bow is made of amourette, has a round stick, an ebony frog and is nickle mounted. The Tubbs bow is branded W.E.Hill on both sides, has a round stick of pernambuco wood and is silver mounted with a fishbone (imitate) winding. The tailpiece and pegs of the viola are made of rosewood. At the moment it has one fine tuner on the a-string, the strings are Evah Pirazzi Gold. On the back of the viola, there is a piece of leather attached - no shoulder rest in the case, but some spare strings, mutes etc. I'd be hugely thankful for any sort of information about the possible whereabouts of my viola and bows.
