Sorry folks. I guess this is probably not the best place to post this; but I was strolling through style.com and came across this link:
http://www.style.com/peopleparties/p...deo/102406WMAG

Given the highly sophisticated nature of this forum, I thought someone would be able to help me out and identify the violin piece being played in the video?

Apologies if this is in the wrong place!

Regards,

It's actually a cello piece, and relatively famous, but I couldn't figure it out.

However, while looking into it, I came across this video, which is really, really cool. A guy plays 37 different cello parts (in widely varying ways) to come up with a very original composition:

Bach's cello suites.
Many recordings exist, notably among them those by Casals (who is credited with essentially rediscovering these long "lost" and neglected suites), Rostrapovich, and more recently Yo-Yo Ma. I believe there's a dvd out there of a PBS special or something like that documenting Ma's process of exploring and recording them. (I never saw it, so I may be wildly off in terms of what the program was really about, and for that matter may have imagined the whole thing.)
