Notes & Reviews:

Bottesini was not only a leading double bass player and conductor, but also a successful composer whose prolific output included at least ten operas as well as numerous sacred and orchestral works. Performed by the talented Stefano Sciascia and David Giovanni Leonardi, this is a feast of virtuosic display not to be missed, and reveals how the double bass is capable of holding its own, and to great effect.
