Notes & Reviews:

Although rarely heard in the concert hall, Giovanni Bottesini's compositions for double bass are staples of the instrument's repertoire. This disc of favorite works by Bottesini features Rick Stotijn, making his debut on Channel Classics. Stotijn is currently leader of the double basses in the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and the Swedish Radio Orchestra. The disc also features the bass player's sister mezzo-soprano Christiane Stotijn, and orchestral support from his friends in the Amsterdam Sinfonietta.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Here is a joyous performance of some lightly lovely and virtuosic music from the romantic period. Giovanni Bottesini (1821-89) was perhaps the greatest double bass player of his period and certainly the most prolific and polished composer for that oft-ignored instrument. He was also a well-known conductor who led the first performance of Verdi's Aida in Cairo, marking the opening of the Suez canal.
