wow it does sound beautiful.
Its not surprising that its once again surfaced even though they think it was buried with its owner. how many graves have been robbed through the centuries? or even if it was kept in a mosolium, maybe the family fell on hard times and figured the violin was worth something? and by what it sounds like its worth an astronomical amount.
I'm just happy its being played now. A wonderful instrument should never be kept silent and the old ones always have wonderful stories to tell, or mysterious ones such as this.
