While recording this week’s Contrabass Conversations episode featuring Michael Hovnanian, I inadvertently fumbled the Gunnelpumpers and Chicago Bass Ensemble introductions, somehow mixing the two together. To clarify, the track that I played on the show was ‘Floobah I’ by the Gunnelpumpers, and the double bass player featured on this track was Gunnelpumpers member Matthew Golombinsky.
Michael’s recording of the Brahms Sonata in E minor for Violoncello and Piano was performed using the Discordia Music edition. Michael is the president of Discordia Music, a company that specializes in high-quality editions of double bass repertoire, keeping the editions as close to the original as possible, with any editorial additions clearly annotated in the parts.
