Dragonetti Concerto

Discussion in 'Recordings [DB]' started by rob_the_bassist, May 10, 2006.

  1. Hey everyone, I'm currently a sophmore in high school and my teacher said its time to learn the Dragonetti Concerto for bass, i was wondering if anyone had a recording of this. i've heard it many times played by my teacher but i never got a hold of a recording.

    David Walter recorded the 1st movement on the Music Minus One, Vol. 2 play-along album. It has the track with accompaniment, and then piano accompaniment by itself. What I didn't realize, however, is that this thing was horribly recorded and/or transfered to a CD. I am not sure that this is a best performance of the selections either, but at any rate is a helpful starting point (for me, at least). I think Lemur has this in their catalog. I too would be interested in finding out a decent recording of the Dragonetti concerto.

    See if you can find the recording done by Thomas Lom

    It's a very "classical" representation, I really recommend it over the Karr.

  6. There are alot of online recordings for free. Well, except the second movement for some reason. There is a Kid playing it (not the greatest recording) here http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=245640
    and there is a site were you can here some good recordings of it here http://www.oase.hdk-berlin.de/~mwolf..._students.html but only the third movement. The first movement can be found played by a zilaphone (<don't think I spelled that right sorry) here http://www.oase.udk-berlin.de/~mwolf/uploads/MIDI_UP/DRAGON1.MID

  9. Sorry, I don't really know what a midi file is. It did kinda sound like a xylophone at the time sorry again. LOL

    I used to have a Gary Karr CD that had the Dragonetti, the Kousevitzky (spelling?), and the Paganini Moses Variations. It's all recorded with an orchestra, too. I think it's just called "Concertos for Double Bass."
