Notes & Reviews:

Gary Karr is the world's leading double bass soloist - a phenomenal musician and pedagogue whose playing and teaching have revolutionized the way in which the lowest instrument in the string family is heard.

Gary has an international following -- not limited to double-bassists and aficionados of string playing -- who consider his every release a `must-have`.

Urlicht Audiovisual is pleased to announce its first release with Gary Karr, joined by his longtime artistic collaborator Harmon Lewis and the first woman concertmaster of the MET Orchestra, Elmira Darvarova.

The disc showcases the music of two European Baroque masters who reached their artistic zenith outside of their native countries in London: Georg Frideric Handel, a giant among Baroque composers, and François-Hippolyte Barthélemon, a French violinist of the generation after Handel who counted Haydn among his friends and colleagues.

Karr. Darvarova, and Lewis eschew the trends of scholarly, so-called "authentic" performance practice, bringing warm cantabile playing and robust energy to Handel's Trio Sonatas Op. 2 Nos. 8 and 9, and puckish playfulness alternating with beautiful contrapuntal melodies in Barthélemon's unjustly neglected Duettos.
