Notes and Editorial Reviews

The two Compact Discs and DVD that you have in your hands represent the culmination of 10 years of the Project. Speaking on behalf of the many musicians who have contributed to our concerts and recordings, we are proud of the work we have done and hope that you will enjoy our performances for years to come.

For years preceding the founding of the Project in September, 2001, it was my dream to create a conductor-less string orchestra and expand the chamber music repertoire for the double bass, my own much-neglected instrument. To date, we have arranged and performed more than 100 chamber music works. My most gratifying compliment is that many of my colleagues who perform with us approve of our “transformations” and want to
Read more return each year. I believe these performances are some of the best we have done, and I am happy to be able to offer performances that represent the complete 2010 season. The DVD, produced in 2009, will give you a look inside the Project workings, which are a model of collaboration at its best.
