Bass blog reader Bobby Sleeper sent me a link to this outstanding video of Berlin Philharmonic principal bassist Nabil Shehata and cellist Kyril Zlotnikov performing Bottesini’s Fantasia on themes by Rossini with the East-West Divan Orchestra under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. This beautifully shot footage is from a live concert in Alhambra,Granada in 2006. This video only contains the first seven minutes of the piece, but it is titled "Part 1", so hopefully part 2 will be coming shortly. If so, you’ll see it here on the blog as well.
Contrabass Conversations guest Guy Tuneh has performed many times with the East-West Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim. Check out Guy Tuneh’s Contrabass Conversations page for more double bass content from him.
