This video recently emerged of a recital given by Steven Isserlis with pianist Connie Shih at the Milan Conservatory in December 2017.

Isserlis commented on Twitter: 

‘Somebody just sent me this - bizarre: a string breaking during a recital I gave with Connie Shih in Milan. I can hardly remember the incident - or it being filmed. It’s usually playing Shostakovich that breaks a string - and it’s usually the G-string…!!!’
