I stumbled on this and I can't stop listening to it, I know nothing of classical music but have always been fond of the sound of the cello.

Where can I look next for more of the same?

The suggestions in the side bar included things like 'Four Seasons' which I didn't like.

Tis gut, more please if you can think of anything.
It seems to be the solo violinist aspect that really hooked me in, in case anyone feels like suggesting anything like that.

It's like having my own private musician.

It isn't a violin. It is a cello.

A cello is a member of the violin family, so would a person who plays such a stringed instrument not be considered a violinist?

A celloist then?

Also just a single musician playing is what I'm looking for. I can't tell what's going on when there is lots of people playing .

If you like Bach then I highly recommend his Sarabande from Cello Suite 1.

Added to my play list......... maybe I'll find enough songs to warrant making a cd of sorts for my radio.

Have you listened to Vivaldi? I think you'd enjoy the circle of fifths in his music. Also, what do you think of vocal music?

Lovely circle of fifths at 2:36 onwards.

Then of course there is Bach.

St Matthew Passion (which I don't particularly like)!
