Interview for Ongakunotomo: three violoncellos da spalla in Bach Collegium Japan

The interview shall be published in anticipation of the concert series and a recording by Bach Collegium Japan of the Six Brandenburg Concertos by J.S.Bach. All violoncello parts shall be played on violoncellos da spalla. For this occasion Bach Collegium Japan engages three players on violoncellos da spalla: Ryo Terakado, Francois Fernandez and myself. All three violoncellos da spalla have been made by me during the past three years.

More information on violoncello da spalla can be found in my Galpin Society Journal articles Vols 60 and 61 and on this blog.
