Manchester Camerata to play rare Antonio Stradivari cello

One of the world's most rare cellos has been loaned to a Manchester chamber orchestra for a performance of Elgar's Concerto.

The 17th Century instrument was made by Antonio Stradivari, who is famous for making the Stradivarius violin.

The performance took place at the Royal Northern College of Music on Wednesday.

BBC North West Tonight's Judy Hobson went along for a sneak preview as Hannah Roberts put the £8m instrument through its paces.
