Edgar Meyer has one of the most personal playing style of all classical bassplayers I know. It feels like his style comes mostly from his Bluegrass playing. Little vibrato and he allows frases to breath, giving also gaps between frases. Perfect in intonation and his security is unbelievable. (He's doing rather fast tempos in I and III movm. in the Bottesini concerto). Playing his own great cadenzas who are so full of invention and youth. Before the cadenzas (I and III movm.Bottesini)he makes a tempo change...I won't say more, you have to hear this for your self. His own music is almost as close to bluegrass as classical music will ever get. I'm not so impressed about the compositions but the playing is good. Josuha Bell and Yo Yo Ma, help making this cd a must for every music lover. For Bass players: This is the most fresh and solid Bottesini performance I've heard.Was this review helpful?
