This Strad viola (the 'MacDonald') goes to auction at Sotheby's with a starting bid of $45 Million.
This link gives more information (it's from Sotheby's).
The viola is one of 10 intact Strad violas. Rarer than violins, and so the Cinderella story.
I'm hoping whoever buys it lets it be alive, played, and well.
Nice way to celebrate the 'year of the Viola,'no?
