In a few words

It is one of the orchestra’s deep voices. Its tall figure always stands out. Its warm, powerful sound has won over many hearts. As an essential harmony component, the double-bass is the lead of this concert dedicated to the string section.


The deepest of all string instruments has found a piece to match its sound: Bottesini’s double bass concerto. This contemporary of Romantic composers was nicknamed “the Paganini of double bass”.
