Would you agree that gut strings generally make the richest and warmest sound? Yes or no?

I thought you might enjoy discovering:

* the sound of a viola designed by Dmitry Badiarov

* performed by a wonderful musician Tomoe Badiarova… playing a solo viola for the first time in her life… normally she plays the violin

* an outstanding group known as Bremen Baroque Orchestra.

Note that the viola is a modern viola in a modern setup.

Nonetheless you probably noticed it has a very rich, warm sound that offsets nicely against the warm tone of this baroque band, which is what a string band playing gut strings would sound in the 18th century.
