Notes and Editorial Reviews

“There can hardly be more intractable material for bravura passages than the double bass.” – contrasting these words by the doyen of Viennese critics, Eduard Hanslick (1825–1904), Hungary-born Ernö Racz, solo double bass player at the Lower Austrian Tonkunstler Orchestra, steals the show with his brilliant style of playing, where even the most virtuoso pieces are mastered with ease. On his latest album by the title “Viaggio nel tempo” with Veronika Trisko, piano, he presents original pieces like Extrème by Lajos Montag, short pieces by Serge Koussevitzky, Signs, Games and Messages for double bass solo by György Kurtág or the double bass solos from symphonies by Joseph Haydn, as well as arrangements like the Sonata Read more for violin and b.c. G minor by Henry Eccles, the Arioso from the Cantata BWV 156 by J. S. Bach or the Nocturne No. 20 by Frederic Chopin. Kicho by Astor Piazzolla is dedicated to Piazzollas longtime friend and colleague Enrique “Kicho” Díaz, regarded as one of the most brilliant interpreters of the tango of his day. Read less
