Double bassist Vito Liuzzi recently let me know about a new composition from Italian bassist and composer Leonardo Presicci. Vito writes:
LEONARDO PRESICCI from ITALY and his new composition : CROSS OVER BASS (HR) for db. and orchestra
I’m happy to present you the new composition by maestro LEONARDO PRESICCI
“CROSS OVER BASS” for doublebass and orchestra.
Here the link to listen to all three movements well recording (live).
Maestro Leonardo Presicci is one of the most important doublebass player in South Italy. You can read his “curriculum vitae” on his MySpace. I’ ve played with him in the doublebass quartett called “Bass Sonority” (Michele Cellaro, Leonardo Presicci, Giovanni Rinaldi and Vito Liuzzi). It always was a pleasure to play with Leonardo and listen to his magic db. a Bedocchi 1901. Now this incredible composition.
I would be very and very happy if you tell me your opinion about everything regarding him (sound, technique and so on). As soon as possible maestro Presicci will insert one of his live concert on YouTube, so you will able to better understand his way of playing.
At the end some of my New Photos on my Italian Forum Contrabbasso Italiano I will talk about the my bow holding and exercises on free string to have a better and more focalized sound.
With all my esteem and best regards,
Vito D. Liuzzi
