Vanhal – Double Bass Concerto in D Major

London Symphony Orchestra


Uploaded on Apr 1, 2011

Rinat Ibragimov, principal double bass of the London Symphony Orchestra together with Catherine Edwards, performs Jan Křtitel Vaňhal’s Double Bass Concerto, originally written in Es Major but performed here a semitone lower.

This popular piece of double bass repertoire is commonly called for in auditions, and here Rinat demonstrates its performance using the original bass part and the Viennese Tuning that would have been in vogue at the time of its composition.

Rinat plays a d-bass by Matheus Albany, a gift from his colleague and friend Alexander Stepanov. He uses Pirastro Eudoxa strings.

Watch Rinat’s performance of Karl Ditters von Ditterdorf’s bass concerto here:
