S. Isserlis cello solo— he uses gut strings, which produce that wicked sound.
It is definitely a wicked sound. It’s chesty and woody and just has a great thrummm to it. He must be playing those bass notes on the open strings because he’s playing a melody line at the same time. At least that’s how I’d have to do it on guitar.
Do you know of any particularly good cello recordings that can be found on LP?
