Three attractive and lively concertos by two exact 18th-century contemporaries (they were both born in 1739) the Viennese Dittersdorf and the Bohemian Vanhal who on at least one occasion played string quartets with Mozart and Haydn. (Haydn and Dittersdorf played violins; Mozart played viola; Vanhal the cello.) This seems to be the only recorded pairing of the two Dittersdorf concertos.
If you are looking for your first double bass disc or your next double bass disc, the disc entitled Super Double Bass is the one to get. Gary Karr is by far one of the world's greatest classical double bass player and has been for 20 years, and he is in superb form on this disc. His technique is flawless. His tone is full and warm. His legato is long and strong. And his ability to make his instrument sing is a match for any virtuoso on any instrument.
