Its a studio performance which was made 7 to 8 years prior to the live one you are watching.

Merci bien.

Count me in as another fan of Anner Bijlsma (2nd recording on Sony).  :)

Another I really like is Paolo Beshi  (Winter & Winter):

@Dave, wich recording on violoncello da spalla do you prefer - Sigiswald Kuijken or Dimitri Badiarov? :)

Hi Que - some discussion throughout the 'Old Musical Instruments' thread HERE; also, Dmitry Badiarov has a BLOG w/ an excellent article - love the fact that he made and played his own instrument!  Searching the web, not much in the way of reviews - see attached PDF; also, Spotify and/or YouTube might offer some samplings.

BUT, this morning, I re-listened to the first discs of each performer (had been a while) - the timings of the discs are nearly identical.  Both play their instruments well w/ plenty of nuance - however, in one of the reviews in the attachment, mention was made of some echoing & reverb in the Badiarov recording, and I have to agree, i.e. he seems a little more in the background and I always prefer 'up front' sound.  Bottom line - I believe that you would enjoy either one and hopefully some 'sampling' may help.  Dave :)

Gordo - LOL! :)  Never searched for 'other' performances on the shoulder cello, but yet another one - $56 on Amazon at the moment - are there others out there? 

BTW - for others who have mentioned the Smith theorbo recordings below - only one available currently on Amazon USA - be nice if Naive would put both discs into a nice 'slim' CD case for the price of one - ;)  BUT, these are available on Spotify, so may plug my iPad into the den stereo and take a listen this afternoon - Dave

I choose Badiarov because I like the sound of his instrument most, and I like the feeling of the hall in the recording, which seems really realistic. I'd miss Terakado a lot though, who is intense as hell in the last three, and very controlled and expressive, which is something I like. But I do like Badiarov's sound, and the rather aristocratic and inflected style.

I have the Kuijken too but every time I try to hear it I feel it's too empty affectively, but it could be me.

I find Badiarov manly and Terakado feminine. In this terminology Kuijken feels a tad sexless.
As to preferences I like Badiarov and Terakado equally and Kuijken a little less.

Ah...gotcha.. a third candidate! 



I guess more choice is kind of an upside to being a slow mover.... :D

Thank you all gentlemen, for your comments! :)

Being Badiarov the builder of these violas da spalla, he maybe reserved the best for himself.  ;D
