  • The Huberman Violin | Stanford Live
    Huberman became one of the most celebrated musicians of his time but it was in 1929 that his contribution to humanity took on an added dimension During that year he visited Palestine and came up with the idea to establish a classical music presence there During Hitler s rise to power Huberman had the foresight to realize he could save many Jewish artists while fulfilling his desire to start a Palestinian Orchestra Huberman auditioned musicians from all over Europe Those selected for the orchestra would receive contracts and most importantly otherwise impossible to get exit visas from their homeland to Palestine Huberman raised the money for the musicians and then their families even partnering with Albert Einstein to set up an exhaustive U S fundraising trip in 1936 By the end of that tour the money for the orchestra was secured and sixty top rate players had been chosen from Germany and Central Europe All in all it was a fantastically successful tour barring one particular performance at Carnegie Hall on February 28th That night Huberman chose to play the second half of his concert on his other violin a Guarneri del Gesu During the applause following his performance of the Franck Sonata Huberman s valet walked on stage to inform him that his Stradivarius had been stolen from his dressing room The police were called while Huberman tried not to panic continuing optimistically with his encores The instrument had previously been stolen in 1919 from a hotel room in Vienna but was recovered days later when the thief tried to sell it This time Huberman was not so lucky There are several versions as to exactly how and why the violin was stolen but what we know for sure is that the instrument ended up in the hands of a young freelance violinist by the name of Julian Altman Some say Altman s mother convinced him to steal it others report that Altman bought if off the actual thief for 100 Regardless Altman took great pains to conceal the violin s true identity covering its lovely varnish with shoe polish and performing on it throughout the rest of his career which included a stint as first chair with the National Symphony Orchestra during World War II Heartbroken Huberman never saw his Stradivarius again However his great dream was fulfilled when the new Palestine Orchestra made its debut in December of 1936 with the great Toscanini on the podium I like to imagine that my own relatives might have been in the audience on that opening night as my grandfather was born there and my great grandfather was part of the first Aliyah of Russian Jewish immigrants to Palestine in 1882 As for his violin it was played by its suspected thief for over fifty years and in 1985 Julian Altman made a deathbed confession to his wife Marcelle Hall about the true identity of the instrument She eventually returned the violin to Lloyd s of London and received a
