Bass of all Basses
Last year I went to see Edgar Meyer play with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. I had never heard of him, but I love the bass and was looking forward to the concert. How many times do you hear a bass soloist? Not often. I was in for a big treat. I had second row seats, which I normally shun. They were perfect for this concert. Mr. Meyer is THE master of the bass. I had to hold my jaw shut it was so stunning. He wrote his own concerto (see the Meyer Bottesini Concertos with YoYo Ma), which showed every wonderful nuance of the bass that you never knew existed. Just beautiful. If you ever have a chance to see him in concert, GO. FAST. I'll be right in front of you.
