Event description

Description

''All my life my Stradivarius had been waiting for me, as I had been waiting for her…''

'A remarkable story of love and loss....a gripping thriller', The Sunday Times

At seven Korean-born Min Kym was a prodigy, the youngest-ever pupil at the Purcell School of Music. At 11 she won her first international prize. She worked with many violins, waiting for ‘the one’. At 21 she found it: a rare 1696 Stradivarius perfectly suited to her build and temperament. Her career soared. She recorded the Brahms concerto and planned a world tour. Then the beloved Stradivarius she thought of as an extension to her own being was stolen at Euston station and her life became unstrung. Hear her extraordinary story told through conversation and her live violin-playing with piano accompaniment.

Age: 16+ years
