Already four years ago, Concerto published an album dedicated to that artist who has been referred to, without any exaggeration, as the Paganini of the double bass. That album might be dubbed exploratory, and featured by the same extraordinary performing artists. Now a second, definitive album is being published, an album which will enrich our knowledge of works for double bass and violin by the composer from Crema. Although his reputation as a virtuoso in the Mephistophelean, Paganinian or Listzian sense dominates the period's iconography, and for that matter even the memories of those of us who have come after, in reality Bottesini was the consummate composer. He was eclectic, versatile, one who proffered - sparingly - to write melodramas, but one who also assiduously cultivated other types of music: sacred music, an orchestral genre similar to a "poema sinfonico" and, above all, all types of chamber music with a significant corpus of quartets and quintets. Naturally he wrote numerous pieces of chamber music featuring his instrument. And, as is well known, he revolutionized both technique and tone of the double bass. They are astounding pieces for the fact that, expressively, they are very balanced, holding many very different aspects together: virtuosity (naturally since he was the greatest virtuoso of the double bass of all times), a deeply rooted melodic vein, the typically romantic tone then prevalent, and even a structural thought, a kind of formal structure. Balance and poetry that you would not expect in a performer, who captivated crowds (and royalty) soliciting emotions and fainting, similar to what happens in today's rock concerts.
Great performance by Francesco Siragusa who in 1997 was selected by Maestro Riccardo Muti to enter "Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala" and "Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala" in Milan, where he currently works.
His performances are enthusiastically welcomed everywhere, thanks to his extraordinary temperament and the unique voice he obtains from his double bass.

O Duo - Owen Gunnell & Oliver Cox
ID: CHRCD017
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Drums

'O Duo' are Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox, two percussionists who bring their eclectic and charistmatic approach to the music on this CD. Well-known pieces such as Chopin!s Fantasie-Impromptu with its glorious central melody and the textual clarity of Bach!s music are juxtaposed with contemporary composers such as the Japanese composer Miki's Marimba Spiritual. There are other contrasting pieces for example Mendelssohn!s Fugue No. 4 in F minor from 1834 and Ter Veldhuis! Goldrush written in 1995.

Among the pieces on the CD are two written especially for the pair. McNeff!s Baristas of which the composer writes, “You only have to see a crack team of coffee-makers to appreciate the comparison in speed, dexterity and - most importantly - sound.” Also Joliffe!s Knock About which was inspired by people casually kicking around a football and of which the composer writes, “At its centre is one simple rhythm, but this is hidden by really fast music, which O Duo manage to pull off with their usual flair.”
