cello explodes in rehearsal

Playing a deeply intense cello concerto can sometimes lead to instrumental misfortune, as this cellist found out.

In a video posted by conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky, we can see cellist Alexander Buzlov tearing through the Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1. All is going well, until a truly terrifying noise…

To be fair, the recovery is exceptional too - as you can hear, he still sounds magnificent after a quick repair job.
