Sergey Malov performs Bach's Sixth Cello Suite on a violoncello da spalla

Russian violinist and violist Sergey Malov performs Bach's Sixth Cello Suite on a violoncello da spalla.

The Belgian violinist, violist and conductor Sigiswald Kuijken, who rediscovered and revived the instrument a decade ago (see news story) believes that the instrument for which Bach wrote his Cello Suites was neither the instrument we know today nor the viola pomposa he is sometimes credited with inventing, but the violoncello da spalla or shoulder cello.
