Rare viola could fetch $45 million

Violist Andrew Ling performs Friday with a rare 1719 viola called the "Macdonald" by Antonio Stradivari during a preview at the Sotheby's auction house in Hong Kong. The viola is expected to sell for more than $45 million in a sale by Sotheby's in June. The auction house says that price would be a record for a musical instrument sold privately or at auction.
