Notes & Reviews:

"When I first heard the Divertimento Concertante for double bass and orchestra by Nino Rota, I immediately recognised that it was one of the best ever compositions for double bass. The work provides a complete image of both technical and also creative possibilities which can be displayed by a double bass virtuoso, not to mention the wonderful melodies which would perhaps not be at all anticipated on this instrument! Right at the beginning, I recognised that Schelomo by Ernest Bloch - originally composed for violoncello - would also be perfectly suited for performance on the double bass. The lower notes and the melodies played by the double bass sound just as good and fascinating as on the cello. There are also a few passages which in my opinion sound even "deeper" and "darker" on the bass. Recording Max Bruch's Kol Nidrei was just as great a challenge. The work has been part of the double bass repertoire for many years despite the inherent difficulty of shaping and communicating these wonderful melodies." Boguslaw Furtok
