Remains of the Thibaud Stradivarius

Recommended Posts

Interesting topic I wonder if any here have ever discussed this subject.

I got to spend time with my luthier recently and he played an old Jacques Thibaud record, I had forgotten the story which is tragic with the loss of Jacques Thibaud's life in a plane crash in France. His violin was destroyed in the crash but he was told the remains of the instrument were given to a school who still has them.

Anyone know about this ?

I always thought that Wilma Neruda was killed in a plane crash, And she had tried to protect her Stradivarius with her body, and of course failed. Maybe I mixed up the two artists.
