Title: Violin's Life Vol. 3
Artist: Grieg / Maier / Almond
Label: Avie
UPC: 822252261226
Genre: Classical Artists

Frank Almond's life is intertwined with that of his violin, the "Lipin´ski" Strad, an exceptional instrument named for the famed 19th-century Polish violinist Karol Lipin´ski and first owned by legendary 18th-century Italian composer-violinist Giuseppe Tartini, represented on A Violin's Life, Volume 3 by his Sonata Prima in D, Op. 2, a trio sonata in all but name. The masterful Piano Trio in E flat by 19th-century Swedish virtuosa Amanda Meier connects with the instrument that had passed on to her future father-in-law Engelbert Ro¨ntgen. Another great Nordic composer, Edvard Grieg, opens the album with his great Sonata No. 3 in C minor. The legend of the Lipin´ski Strad went viral in 2014 when, following a concert, walking towards his car, Frank Almond was tasered by an assailant and the prized instrument was stolen. An FBI pursuit resulted in the recovery of the instrument within weeks. International media ensued on the BBC, NPR, and a feature in Vanity Fair. An award-winning documentary film "Plucked" premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival. Frank Almond's critically acclaimed and chart-topping recordings of A Violin's Life are now a trilogy. The "Lipin´ski" Strad lives on.
