Product Description

The Bassinova Quartet showcases the range, virtuosity and musicality of the double bass in chamber music. The debut album of the Bassinova Quartet features two remarkable works from the standard string quartet literature, Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 11 in F Minor, Op. 95 “Serioso” and Dmitri Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 110. Specially transcribed for the Bassinova Quartet, the combination of four basses gives a new depth and richness to each work. This album not only expands the repertoire for the double bass in chamber music, but also showcases a new standard of double bass performance practice.
