Contrebasse ? Contrebasses !
This concert witnesses my efforts to join historical research and practical musical life. Its original version was intended as a series of duos, with different double basses (from D violone to electric bass via Viennese violone and others) facing different instruments. I now perform it with gambist/cellist Esmé De Vries.
Due to the obvious difficulty of the logistics, I also present this project as an academic lecture (in English, French, Italian or Spanish) about double bass history, without live performance.
