There's a Rutkowski & Robinette for sale in Holland - the 16' Hass left by
Igor Kipnis, recently sold in a US auction. I'll be around to have a look in
a couple of weeks... If anybody knows something about this instrument, its
recent history, about R&R... I'll be curious and grateful! I understand the
Victoria Bach Festival got a similar one (?)
