Item# bilitzky-double-basseast

Product Description

The recordings on this CD represent an intial attempt by Hagai Bilitzky to stretch the traditional boundaries of the way the double bass is used in the music of the Middle East. This is a recording of Hagai's master degree recital at the Eastern Department of The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, on June 30, 2009. During his studies Hagai devised a technique of playing eastern style bass, under the guidance of Prof. Taiseer Elias and Dr. Michael Klinghoffer, making it possible to bring the double bass into prominence as a solo instrument in this genre.
