Dan Styffe, who serves as Co-Principal Bass in Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Professor at The Norwegian Academy of Music and Barratt Dues´s Institute of Music, recently premiered Rolf Martinsson’s Double Bass Concerto with the Oslo Philharmonic. Here’s a video featuring excerpts from the piece and some behind-the-scenes footage. It’s a really well-produced video (check out the amazing Gasparo da Salò on which Dan plays!), and Dan has a wonderful website as well–be sure to check it out at www.danstyffe.com:
