The story is told of the colorful, 19th-century gifted violinist, Niccolo Paganini, who was performing before a packed house, playing a difficult piece of music, accompanied by a full orchestra giving him magnificent support. But ... suddenly one string on his violin snapped and, of course hung down, from his violin.
While reportedly he began to perspire, he continued to play beautifully.
Soon, another string popped, and then a third string. Now, here was the master violinist with only one string left.
