A Stradivarius violin bought by the Romanian state for some 70,000 Swiss francs in 1956 especially for artist Ion Voicu, was handed to its new owner in a ceremony on Friday. Alexandru Tomescu, winner of a contest within the "George Enescu" International Festival in Bucharest, received the 1.2 million euro worth instrument and intends to hold a concert using it next week.

Tomescu, who will use the violin for the following five years, will participate in the Romanian Piano Trio and intends to launch a CD dedicated to his treasury-instrument.

The Stradivarius was returned to the Culture Ministry in September 2007, by the son of the late Ion Voicu, Madalin.

During the five years of temporary ownership, Tomescu will have a room where he can practice everyday. Except for the practice hours, the instrument will be permanently guarded. The violin was insured for 1.2 million euro, with a 8,100 euro insurance rate.

VIDEO Aduna bani pe Facebook iar apoi ii ajuta pe oamenii sarmani din Romania. Gest emotionant al unor romani stabiliti in Germania

Intr-o lume in care avem senzatia ca nimeni nu mai are timp sa-si ajute aproapele, cativa romani stabiliti in Germania ne impresioneaza. Ei au alcatuit pe Facebook o comunitate, iar ai nostri din diaspora aduna periodic bani, alimente si haine. Unii dintre ei vin chiar in tara ca sa ii ajute concret pe batranii si copiii necajiti.
