Virtuoso violinist Roman Totenberg’s rare Stradivarius was stolen in 1980. Decades later the violin was recovered, and on Friday night, it’s returning to the scene of the crime in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a homecoming performance.

Roman Totenberg was the father of NPR Supreme Court correspondent Nina Totenberg. WBUR’s Andrea Shea (@asheaarts) reports.
