Can you imagine the feeling of loosing something that dates back to the 18th century? South Korean violinist Hahn-Bin definitely knows. The fellow was riding in a New York cab from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to his Chinatown apartment in lower Manhattan, and somehow managed to forget his Giovanni Francesco Pressenda violin — which is worth a mere $500,000. The instrument was later found through the cab’s GPS tracking device and Hahn-Bin is said to have cried “my baby” when he got his hands on it, again. The 22-year-old violinist is preparing to make his debut at Carnegie Hall in October, so we wonder what safety measures he’ll take for his next taxi ride. [via Luxuo]
