We’re offering a one-of-a-kind treat for podcast listeners out there this New Year’s Day. Guy Tuneh, the marvelous double bass virtuoso who has made many appearances on the blog and podcast in the past, has asked me to release this complete and unedited recording of him performing Bruch’s Kol Nidrei for a very special concert. Double bassist Radu Mantu did an audio recording of Guy Tuneh performing on a borrowed bass for children with terminal illnesses, and this emotionally powerful experience is something that Guy Tuneh would like to offer up in commemoration of the new year.
After speaking with Mr. Tuneh a few days ago, we agreed that it would be fitting for him to offer up a few words wishing listeners all the best for the new year, so this episode will open up with a few sentences from him.
This is the only complete performance of a musical work that Guy Tuneh has made available to the public on the Internet.
