Brodskys recover 40 scores stolen in Netherlands

Thursday, 22 November 2012

Dutch police have recovered the 40 scores that were stolen from the Brodsky Quartet on 15 November. The concert clothes and passports that were taken from the group's car were also recovered.

According to Constance Deelen, the Brodskys' manager in the Netherlands, the scores were retrieved by police officers in relation to a different case, and no arrest was made. Since the theft, the group has scrambled to find new copies of the 40 works, which are used in its innovative 'Wheel of 4Tunes' programme, where pieces are selected at random from a list of 40. 'Some scores have been newly bought, and composers have furnished the group with new parts, but it will be great for the players to have their own parts back, with their own bowings and fingerings marked in,' she said.
