c1817: the violin is bequeathed to Polish virtuoso violinist Karol Lipinski who inspired many works for the instrument.

January 2014: Following a concert, walking towards his car, Frank Almond is tasered by an assailant and the "Lipinski" Strad is stolen. An FBI pursuit results in the recovery of the "Lipinski" Strad a few weeks later. International media coverage goes viral, including international TV coverage, a feature in Vanity Fair, NPR, BBC, and much more.

May 2016: Frank Almond releases A Violin Life, Volume 2, featuring more music associated with the "Lipinski" Strad, including works by Beethoven, Amanda Maier-Röntgen and Eduard Tubin, poised to create another classic release.
