I thought I had a pretty comprehensive picture of classical music instruments but the "violoncello da spalla" is a new one for me!
The Bach Cello Suites are just amazing. If you ever get into them you will learn of the special instruments that the sixth (final and most intricate) may have been written for. This (violoncello da spalla) is just one of the possibilities.
As of now I must own at least a dozen different recordings of these wonderful pieces of music.
Here's a video of the first movement of the first suite played on a very special accordion:
