Notes & Reviews:

The romantic period did not supply large amounts of repertoire to the double bass and piano chamber combination, though the 'Romance' by Oswald Schwabe, a teacher at the Royal Academy in Leipzig during the second half of the 18th Century, demonstrates a classically constructed design and a most natural and austere German spirit. All other pieces here are beautiful transcriptions played by the immensely talented Stefano Sciascia on double-bass and accompanied by David Giovanni Leonardi on piano.
