Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bottesini is remembered mainly as a double-bass virtuoso and as a conductor, but he was also a composer of some success; apart from several works for the double-bass h also wrote seven operas. The best known, Ero e Leandro, was premiered at the Turin Regio in 1879 to great success. The score, stylistically comparable to the late Verdi, certainly reveals unusual attention to orchestration and uses a richly chromatic language, not without influences of the Wagnerian style that was then catching on in Italy too.
