Below one may hear audio recordings of Baroque Violoncelli and other instruments produced in the Vienna workshop. Several of the Baroque Violoncello have smaller corpus yet demonstrate the possibilities of still achieving a rich, balanced bass range. The Violoncello Piccolo in the second video made in 2015 has a lovely, silvery bass/tenor range which is well suited to the vast amount of obligato violoncello repertoire made easier by the 5th, higher E-string.
