The university asked Ms. Salvato to give the violin back but she refused and explained how she came into possession of the Duke of Alcantara: she had received it from her former husband, who in turn got it from an aunt. As she laid dying, the aunt pulled the violin from under her bed and told to her nephew, she had found it by the side of a freeway in Los Angeles. In December 1995 the litigation was resolved out of court and the University of California came again in possession of the Duke of Alcantara after having missed it for almost 30 years.

Remarks:

  1. In 1980 Mr. Weinstein donated this instrument to the Ontario Heritage Foundation which in turn donated it 1988 to the Canada Council for the Arts.
  2. These noted violinists have played on this instrument. The chronological order is not known.
  3. Ms. Patipatanakoon is member of the Gryphon Trio. The jury said: 'Annalee Patipatanakoon has it all: she is a great performer and a sensitive, intelligent and mature musician. We are confident that the loan of the 1717 "Windsor-Weinstein" Stradivari violin will significantly enhance her work as a member of the Gryphon Trio and provide added impetus to the development of a solo career.'
