CD Spotlight November 2017: Dittersdorf Complete Works For Solo Double Bass

Complete Works for Double Bass

The Works for Double Bass
by Dittersdorf were written in 1760s
for the Double Bass virtuoso
Pichelberger. Such works
are well known for being technically
demanding (with the viola part
penned by Dittersdorf for himself).
The two concertos were used
by Haydn’s bassist Sperger
at the Esterházy Orchestra
and mainly survived for this reason.

Dittersdorf was on friendly
terms with Mozart & Haydn & they
used his Symphonies
& Oratorios as Style reference.
