Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stefano Scodanibbio (1956-2012) created extraordinary music for double bass. Alisei (Trade Winds) features his compositions for solo bass, for two basses, and for bass ensemble. Among them is a world premiere recording of Otetto, an often breath-taking compendium of all the extended techniques he invented or developed throughout his life. It is his great spiritual legacy, says Danielle Roccato, who co-founded the Ludus Gravis bass ensemble with Scodanibbio. As a solo performer, Roccato rises to the challenges of Due Pezzi Brillanti, a piece which pushes virtuosity to its limits, and makes the bass sing in its on true voice on the title composition. Da Una Certa Nebbia, for two basses, also a premiere recording, pays implicit tribute to the Read more work of Morton Feldman. Read less
