Editorial Reviews

Giovanni Bottesini enjoyed a globe-trotting career as "the Paganini of the double bass". He was also a successful conductor and a composer, although only the music he wrote for his own instrument has outlived him. Many of the works on this recording empha

Format: MP3 Music
I have no wish to repeat my opinion from Vol 1 of this duo's lovely and lively performances of Bottesini's inspired scores, but think it superfluous to add more lavish praise. Suffice it to say that these are more wholly committed, technically very assured, joyful and melodic outings, which can't fail to give satisfaction. Can't be bothered to read my review for Vol 1? Okay, here's the repetition: Some of the reasons for the success of these performances is the extraordinary range which Quarrington manages to coax from his instrument, which often sounded much more like a cello. Also, Burashko's scintillating and sympathetic piano accompaniment adds to the richness and sparkle of the melodic lines. Additionally, the sense of bounce and 'sprung rhythmn' which infuse these performances, ensured they were anything but earthbound or leaden (another prejudice shot down!). Bottesini also deserves much of the credit, for as both a double bass virtuoso and conductor, he used the full range of the instrument, and was also committed to 'an exaltation of melody above all else'. Consequently, these are surprisingly warm and lyrical pieces given the lead instrument, and a rich surprise. If you've already explored the delights of Vol 1, simply snap this up. Otherwise, if you're a lover of cello or lower register instruments, or simply appreciate quality chamber music performances, hesitate no longer: a lovely surprise awaits!
