I recently did a search on violin-related short stories and this is what I found:

“M’sieu Fortier’s Violin” by Alice Dunbar
http://www.readbookonline.net/readOnLine/4294/
The story of a poor old violinist and his beloved violin in 19th Century New Orleans.

“The Russian Violinist” by Ellen Visson. Previously published in Literary Review.

“The Weird Violin” by Anonymous
http://arthursclassicnovels.com/arthurs/horror/weird10.html
A famous violinist stumbles upon a very spooky violin.

“Amongst the carefully-arranged violins was a curious old instrument the like of which the virtuoso had never seen before, and at this he now stared with all his eyes. It was an ugly, squat violin, of heavy pattern, and ancient appearance. The maker, whoever he had been, had displayed considerable eccentricity throughout its manufacture, but more especially in the scroll, which, owing to some freak, he had carved into the semblancc of a hideous, grinning face. There was something horribly repulsive about this strange work of art, and yet it also possessed a subtle fascination. The violinist, keeping his eyes upon the face, which secmed to follow his movements with fiendish persistency, slowly edged to the door, and entered the shop.”

Happy reading!
