Description: This came out barely a couple of years into the CD era, among the first of ASV's considerable list of Bottesini recordings and has an excellent mix of long, lyrical bel canto pieces along with the hair-raising stunt pieces the composer was also so fond of (try the Lucia finale). Thomas Martin (double bass), Anthony Halstead (piano). Original 1984 ASV release.
