Eccles Sonate

Discussion in 'Recordings [DB]' started by Bethelbass1, Nov 24, 2003.


  1. I'm playing the eccles sonate. Does anyone know a good recording that is avaliable to purchase. I can't find any on amazon that is played on the bass.
     
  2. The Karr version is on Gary Karr Recital and it's available through Lemur, R342 is the cat.#. Go to http://www.lemurmusic.com
     
  3. I'd rather not get the Karr recording. He does some interesting things, but If there are no others I will consider it.

    I have a copy by Yoan Goilav, on a cd called the Virtuoso Romantic Double Bass. It is decent, and if you just want to hear it played for you it does the trick. I think Lemur carries it

    Bernard Salles does a good version with a string quintet. I bought a copy from lemur music. Also, Ovidiu Badilla does it on a cd called Memorial Recordings. I also got that from Lemur Music.
     
  6. Can I ask why not Karr?
     
  7. Does anybody know where i can buy a recording of the Dragonetti Concerto in A? Lemur doesnt sell it and I'm lookin for one.

    Check out a cd named "Il contrabasso Italiano" on www.amazon.com
    It has both Eccles and Dragonetti the player is an Italian guy (teaching in Rome) called Massimo Giorgi.

    The version by Bernard Cazauran[/URL] with a string quartet is available on Amazon, a very sweet and expressive interpretation, IMO.

    Gary Karr's recording is amazing. He plays it with harpschichord. Get it!! :)
     
  11. I love people who make remarks like this and then don't have the ***** to back it up.

    How about Edgar Meyer's new duo album. He just does the first and last movements, but isn't that what Eccles wrote anyway?
     
  13. When I wrote this my teacher and I were discussing some of Karr's techniques in playing (such as playing with the bass more vertically) and I guess that's what I meant. Truthfully I don't really remember. Karr is a great player and his recording is probably just fine.
