    Is that a theorbo in the first of the three pieces in the trailer? Gotta have one.

    Hi Hank,
    I was looking at the album site on Pentatone and the instruments are listed with the tracks. According to the Pentatone site, that is an archlute on the Bach Cello Suite No. 1.

    Plucked Back - Alon Sariel

    D'Oh, I missed it! It's also listed above!

    OK. I guess that means the theorbo is even longer necked. Kinda like a Pete Seeger archlute.

    This is a stunning album. His feel for Bach is clearly more expressive and advanced to this ear of what gets recorded on mandolin. Played like the best of the best of classical music, not a fiddle tune (like I sound when I play Bach, not a criticism of anyone in particular, although...). Sorry there isn't more information. I messaged the label Saturday asking for input, still haven't heard back. Always possible it went to a spam folder. And, another Arik Kerman mandolin owner.

    I think what he's calling an arched lute, is an oud of some kind. It's a pretty cool sound for shaping thoes notes!

    (I could do without the fake water sounds however.)

    Alon is indeed a great musician and this is a stunning album indeed.

    His Telemann album is really great.

    Great playing. I have no German but here's a video I stumbled across of him on NDR. https://www.ndr.de/kultur/musik/klas...sariel100.html
