Solo bass recital 10/30 downtown Buffalo

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [DB]' started by So Low Bass, Oct 26, 2009.

  1. I'd like all double bass players know about my recital this Friday in Buffalo. I am classically trained... done the Carnagie Hall, had the great experiences playing the Dragonetti and Per Qesta Bell Mano with orchestras, and the Prokofieff Quintet. I turned to adapting "classical" pieces and original compositions for vintage, four string electric bass.

    My approach is very "double bass" as opposed to a more current school that has little bass tone or function, and would simply add two more strings to play Bach's 6th suite "easier".

    I know that there are many players between Cleveland, Toronto, and Rochester. Make a long weekend out of it! :hyper:
