Do you think he has six trouser snakes?

That would be three too many. One trouser snake for each pair of hands.

That’s freaking wonderful ear candy. I can’t get that on a CD hu?? I’m not even a classical guy and keep listening to that over and over. - Part one anyway.

It sorta reminds me of the sound track of The Last Mohicans. I love that sound track (as well as the movie).

Yeah Mike, despite the reference to a CD in the end-credits on the video, none appears in Sollima's discography or in other commercial sources(maybe buried deep somewhere in Italy?).

That work appears to fall in the "minimalist" camp of modern classical music, involving repetition of the same rhythmic pattern with relatively little variation. You may like either that pattern or the sound of the cello itself, so I'll give you some possible candidates(out of hundreds). A nice cello collection(not minimalist)is Nigun , based on(you guessed it)various Jewish themes. An interesting example of minimalist string music is Philip Glass's music for Dracula . Another cellist in the minimalist or post-minimalist school is Maya Beiser who has several CDs readily available. If you want, you can listen to the samples on Tower or the longer ones that Amazon gives.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Thanks John. Have you heard the sound track of The Last of the Mohicans? It may be simple repetition I like, but I think I’m more impressed with the harmony of all the different notes. I like the sound of the cello too.

I listened to the links and prefer the Dracula the best, with the Maya second and didn't care for the first one too much. If Maya would loose the Indian stuff, I'd like her more.
