    Thanks for the update. I used to use PhotoSync when I still had the Mac. Good app.

    Vieuxtemps Guarneri Violin (c. 1741) sold for $16 million in 2014!

    This morning while browsing FB, I went to a LINK HERE about expensive instruments sold at auction or private sales - the mixture was quite eclectic, so take a look at the link, if interested. The most expensive on the list shown/described below, i.e. the Vieuxtemps Guarneri Violin - Henri Vieuxtemps (1820-1881) was a famous Belgian violinist and composer; my small collection of his works includes a 3-CD set of his Violin Concertos.

    The Vieuxtemps Guarneri Violin

    Thought to be the most expensive violin in the world, this instrument earned its name via a previous owner, Belgian musician Henri Vieuxtemps. Later Yehudi Menuhin, Pinchas Zukerman and others took turns with the strings.

    Constructed by Italian instrument creator Guiseppi Guarneri circa 1741, the violin was in mint condition when it sold in 2014, even after almost 300 years of use. Purchased by an anonymous buyer, he or she loaned it to American concert violinist, Anne Akiko Meyers (pictured), to play for life.

    I find it very refreshing to learn that the buyer didn't purchase the violin to lock it away in a vault, never to be seen again, but made it available for its intended purpose, to be played as is was meant to be.

    Fortunately, many of the string instruments from the Amati-Guarneri-Stradivari era have been maintained/restored and used by a number of famous performers - even much more modern sets of instruments have become famous. For example, I have the Complete Beethoven String Quartets performed by the Alexander SQ from 2009 - the recordings were done using the famous Ellen M. Egger Quartet of Instruments which were made in 1987 by Francis Kutter (three on Stradvari frames) - some more information quoted below for those interested. Dave :)
