May 12, 2016

‘I had this dream – which turned out to be a premonition – that I was going to break a string at the competition – and it actually happened!’

British cellist Guy Johnston talks about the moment that his string snapped at the live televised 2000 BBC Young Musician of the Year final – which he won.

The final of the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year takes place on Sunday 15 May – among the three performers is 17-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.
