Bach, J. S. - BWV 1007 Cello Suite 1 Sarabande - German Theorbo Video

Introducing my brand new German Theorbo! Based on the Jauck 1734 in the Kunsthistorischesmuseum in Vienna it is in d minor tuning with top course "d" (probably like Weiss and Baron did it). Double gut courses except for the top two. String lengths 78.8cm
95.7cm and 108.3 cm. Still figuring my way around the instrument but I was so eager to share it I wanted to post a short piece even if the performance isn't perfect. Transcription by Hopkinson Smith and lute by Andrew Rutherford.

The video moves me, but I find the Theorbe not as suitable to the musik than the guitar.
The guitar has more sustain. It can sound much sweeter. That's what I am missing here a little bit.
The pieces character is more like a peace bringer, so to me it needs more sweetness even in the instrument...
Thank you for this new insight to the 1007 Sarabande, kidneycutter :merci:
