    What a phenomenal sound! There is clearly a vocal quality resounding in the upper register midway through the first movement. It's as if a choir is gently moaning above the throng. I had to look twice to make sure there were no vocalists in the back row. How revealing it is of the versatility of the upright.

    This was genuinely entertaining and all bassists should give it a listen. Thanks!

    Amazing sounds! Also, knowing how much classical players can spend on a DB, there's probably several million dollars worth of basses in that room.

    I'd spend a lot of money to be in that room!
    But imagine the nightmare of touring with 90 full scale uprights...

    All the best,
  6. Well, that's the case with any orchestra:bag:

    90 basses and 1 triangle. This must have been incredible to hear in person. Thanks for posting
