I have been meaning to chat with Leon Bosch for years. I’ve put out several all-music episodes on Contrabass Conversations featuring his always interesting solo projects, but this is the first time that I’ll have actually done an interview with him. It’ll be great–I can’t wait!
In the meantime, check out this video of Leon recording the Dittersdorf Concerto with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Leon was principal bass of this orchestra for many years before retiring to devote himself full-time to his solo and chamber projects.
