CBC 31: Rabbath interview 3 plus Andrew Anderson and Matthew Weiner music

This week we are wrapping up our interview with double bass virtuoso François Rabbath. You can hear the previous sections of this interview on episode 16 and episode 22 of the podcast.

We will also be featuring in interesting new twist in Contrabass Conversations interviews today—the Lyric Opera’s Andy Anderson (a regular collaborator on the podcast) will be discussing one piece in depth and offering practice advice and tips. This week we will be discussing the first movement of Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, which we will be doing after the conclusion of our Rabbath interview.

Today we will also be hearing tracks from “At the Uke Shack #1”, featuring Seattle bassist Matt Weiner as well as Del Rey on ukulele. You’ll hear “Clockin’ the Vic” right after we conclude our conversation with Rabbath as well as a few tunes at the end of the program. Enjoy!
