    The didgeridoo improvisation is very nice, but what does it have to do with my viola jokes?

    The Bach... Well, it's technically well played (at least the part I have listened to; it stopped loading properly somewhere in the prelude, and I didn't have the patience to wait), but I find it hard to enjoy baroque music played in such a romantic way. That kind of interpretation was common fifty years ago, but it's a bit surprising to hear a young player play like that.

    Shouldn't this thread be in the Culture forum?

    I quite like this one performed by Yo-Yo Ma, for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwHpDOWhkGk

    Of course there is this hacker How does this guy stand up? Compared to a modern player like Yo Yo Ma.

    I found this master class by that same hacker!:
    Have you seen this one?

    I thought it interesting his comment there was no staccato on cello in Bach's time.

    I also found this one, must have been one of his last performances, at the UN:
