20th Century Romantics - Works for Double Bass



This recording focuses on romantic works from the 20th century that deserve greater recognition – most are original. They include fine examples from Russia, America, Hungary, Argentina and Great Britain.

20th Century Romantics - Works for Double Bass


“If you don’t often buy double bass recitals, here’s a good reason to start. This is a winning CD, full of attractive music expertly played. Nicholas Bayley is first bassist of the BBC Scottish Symphony and formerly principal for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. The composers, both familiar and otherwise, are at their best… Every piece on this programme is a success that deserves your ears. Bayley and Duce make for great partners throughout — a truly satisfying chamber collaboration. I don’t have too many double bass albums in my collection. Is that a mistake on my part or is this just an unusually fine example? Either way, I’m captivated by this release.” Brian Reinhart,
