Top Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
I enjoyed this immensely. I note another review complains about the poor choice of music not showing the potential of the double bass. I think this is rather showing an ignorance of the history of the instrument. There is no doubt that there are more complex compositions for the double bass, but Bottesini was arguably the first double bass virtuoso who began the process of allowing the double bass to be more than a support instrument.

The transition from being considered a support instrument to a leading instrument occurs for almost every instrument, albeit at different times throughout history.

As a result it is not a surprise that the music is less complex than later compositions as more composers considered writing for the instrument.

Does that make the music itself less enjoyable? That is up to the individual listener to decide for it is a matter of personal taste. Does is somehow diminish the performance of the 3 wonderful musicians? No. Does it mean the performance is not what Bottesini intended? I doubt it.

Very enjoyable indeed.

Breaks in sound at the end of the disc
Poor quality of musical choice- it does not show to best advantage the quality of double-bass playing that can be achieved
