The Taiwanese-Australian violinist Ray Chen has been given one of the world’s best instruments on loan.

It’s the the 1714 ‘Dolphin’ Stradivarius violin, formerly owned by Jascha Heifetz, and it’s being loaned to him by the Nippon Music Foundation.

Ray Chen was the soloist on the soundtrack of The Song of Names (pictured with Francois Girard and Howard Shore).
