Furtok and Stähle: Gran Duetto No 2 Finale

For you classical music fans out there we found this remarkable video of Boguslaw Furtok and Johannes Stähle performing Giovanni Bottesini’s “Gran Duetto No 2 Finale.”

A little history lesson, Bottesini was an Italian Romantic composer (1821-1889), conductor, and a double bass virtuoso. Bottesini is credited as being one of the main virtuoso composers to bring the versatility and beauty of the double-bass to the public eye (along with his predecessor and contemporary Dragonetti (1763-1846)). Furtok has an album available “Giovanni Bottesini: Double Bass Concerto” where he performs selected works by Bottesini with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra.
