Product Description

These works for two double basses by Giovani Botteseini date from his student days at the Milan Conservatory. The delightful Fantasia on Themes of Rossini features an opening Tarantella, a lyrical middle section and a stormy finale. Passioni amorose, in three movements like the rhapsodic and pyrotechnically brilliant Concerto a Due Contrabbassi, begins with a light-hearted Allegro, followed by a lyrical Andante and a rondo Allegretto. The second of the Tre Grand Duetti is recorded here in the original version for two three-stringed instruments.
