Concerto no.2 in B Minor for string bass and piano by Giovanni Bottesini

  • Edited by Lucio Buccarella. Published by International

Giovanni Bottesini (1821-89) was one of the most remarkable virtuosos of the 19th century. He was the Romantic era's foremost double bass soloist and composer for the instrument, responsible for greatly extending its technical and expressive possibilities thru concertos, bravura works, and salon pieces, much as Paganini did for the violin. He was also a respected conductor of Italian opera, known for playing virtuosic fantasies on popular opera themes on his bass during intermissions.

Bottesini's Bass Concerto No. 2 in B minor is one of his most performed works, with dazzling virtuosic challenges and lyrical, operatic passages, as in the bel-canto style aria at its center. Presented in solo tuning. Edited by Lucio Buccarella. Master level, grade 6
