Cello implodes during recording session: video

4 July 2014, 16:56

A video showing a cellist's instrument falling to pieces in her hands has been posted to YouTube.

The video, which features a trio of string musicians during a recording session, shows the aged cello finally succumb to the pressures of its vintage, and surprises its owner by falling apart in her hands.

After some initial shock at the tailpiece flying off, she seems unsurprised by the instrument's demise, saying that it was "on its last legs" anyway.
