Synopsis

Album Description
"Catalin Rotaru has succeeded brilliantly in offering a CD of great masterpieces played in a masterful way. His choice of music places the solo double bass on the high plateau it richly deserves. This recording is a high standard example of superb bass playing and great musicianship." -- Gary Carr First recordings of two of these brilliant arrangements of music by great composers, originally written for cello or violin, transcribed here for the double bass. Accessible, beautiful music with a huge sound! Catalin Rotaru, double bass, joined the School of Music at Arizona State University in 2005. He is in demand as a performer and clinician throughout the world. Pianist Baruch Meir has performed extensively in Austria, England, France, Israel, Portugal, and the US, and has been a Bösendorfer Concert Artist since 2003. He holds the Artist Diploma from the Royal College of Music in London, and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from ASU.
 

CD Reviews

Amazing playing.
Kyle Miller | 10/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Being a double bassist myself, I admire how Rotaru utilizes amazing tone, phrasing and timing to transform his solo-tuned instrument into a cello. The Brahms is the highlight, simply gorgeous."
