In this programme two musicians travel criss-cross through two centuries and six countries in search of melodious gems. Gems that really belong to somebody else’s ‘domain’. For here we listen to the giant of string instruments, the double bass, as it whets its appetite on the melodious and virtuosic repertoire of its smaller siblings, the violin, viola and cello. Surely, the double bass can sing compellingly too, and tackle the most daredevil escapades? Yes, it can, and in so doing it surfaces from those low and hidden orchestral depths in which its life and lot usually lie. For this recording the double bass and its faithful friend the piano, have journeyed extensively, bringing home a rich booty of musical discoveries, ‘stolen gems’ from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. From Argentina, Germany, Austria, the USA, Russia and Italy.
