Notes & Reviews:

Known to his contemporaries as the Paganini of the double bass, Giovanni Bottesini significantly extended the technical possibilities of the instrument both as a composer and virtuoso soloist. After the 'Prelude' to 'Ero e Leandro', Bottesini's greatest operatic masterpiece, this disc continues with the most popular of his compositions for the instrument among bassists today, the 'Concertino in C minor'. In this work virtuosity is always at the service of musical ends. The rarely performed 'Duo Concertante for Cello and Double Bass on Themes from Bellini's I Puritani' makes considerable technical demands of the soloists.
