I'm asking about these recordings specifically because from what I've heard of them (what samples are available, etc) they all held promise and in some respects met my aesthetic preferences. So obviously I'm not ruling out Queyras/Melnikov or whoever at some point in the future but yeah. I already have two sets of Beethoven cello sonatas, so I obviously don't "need" another one, but such is life.
I like Komen's instrument just fine, and I think I also preferred his playing overall to Lazić's, which is why I ended up not looking at the modern instrument set. There's less in the way of reviews or information about the period one, though.
