Anthony Stoops (double bass)
Ching-chu Hu (piano)


With this recording, double bassist Anthony Stoops embarks on an unlikely project - that of enlarging the repertoire for solo double bass music in order to legitimatize the double bass as an important solo instrument.

Performing five new works by American composers, some of them commissioned by him, Stoops is a strong advocate for his project. An international acclaimed soloist, pedagogue, orchestral and chamber musician, Stoops is Associate Professor of Double Bass at the University of Oklahoma and Co-principal Bass of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic.

A graduate of Northwestern University, the University of Iowa and the University of Michigan, Stoops performs on a custom double bass made for him by American luthier Aaron Reiley.
