Here is a great video of the excellent bassist Vito Liuzzi playing some Bottesini. Here is an introduction to this video from Vito himself:
VITO LIUZZI plays live the “Divertimento Concertante” for doublebass and piano (better Orchestra) written by NINO ROTA (who has been the most important italian soundtrack’s composer) for the great italian soloist FRANCO PETRACCHI. It’s a live-TV performance for Telenorba Broadcasting Italian TV (the most important South Italy local TV. But for questions of Copyright, they has no gived the permission to use their professional shootings. I have had to download a normal videocamera shootings, and not the professional ones.
It’s not easy to play with three professional cameras framing you and with those three unpleasant lights which appear and disappear. It has been a big emotion !!!
Enjoy with it!!
p.s.: Bottesini Tarantella is an optional in the third video, at the end. !!!
p.p.s.:sorry if quality audio is not at the best levels!!!
