Jewish-Austrian violin virtuoso Erika Morini died on this day in 1995 – aged 91.

A protege of Otakar Ševčík, Ms Morini is remembered as one of the pre-eminent female concert violinists of the 20th Century.

Tragically her 1727 ‘Davidoff’ Stradivarius, and a number of precious paintings, letters and scores, were stolen from her New York City apartment only days before her death – the crime today still remains unsolved.
