Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason gets his 400-year-old Amati cello tuned by the legendary luthier, Florian Leonhard. The first tuning the A string lost it's 'resonance' after the tuning. Followed by a second attempt giving the instrument an all around robust nature.

More on the Amati and Kanneh-Mason:
"2016 BBC Young Musician-winning cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason has received a 1610 Brothers Amati cello on permanent loan.

The instrument was originally loaned to the 17-year-old for his performance in the final of the BBC contest at London's Barbican and for his Royal Festival Hall debut earlier this year through Florian Leonhard Fine Violins. The dealership has now facilitated the permanent arrangement 'with the help of a generous anonymous sponsor based in London.'

'I immediately fell in love with this cello in the Spring and I am thrilled,' said Kanneh-Mason. 'The cello has been bought and is on loan to me from a private collection. I can hardly believe that I can continue to develop my relationship with this cello, making the sound more completely my own over time. This is a cello that will grow with me and respond to what I need to express."
