Notes & Reviews:

Catalin Rotaru is on the faculty at Arizona State University. A graduate of the National University of Music in Bucharest and the University of Illinois, he has served as principal and associate principal bass in several orchestras including the Romanian National Radio Orchestra and has been a prizewinner at numerous competitions.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The main item here is the Mozart concerto played on the double bass. Rotaru does it well, complete with violinistic cadenzas that closely resemble the ones we know. All of this makes pleasant listening. Rotaru is a fine player who seems to work sitting down - unusual for a bass viol player.
