Swinging to the bass.

By Posted in - News on November 5th, 2013

Ragazze Quartet & Rick Stotijn (double bass)

Swinging to the Bass is a thrilling collaboration between the Ragazze Quartet and Dutch double bass virtuoso Rick Stotijn. Rick Stotijn is generally viewed as one of the world’s leading double bass players and he is a much sought after musician for chamber music concerts.

Rhythm is at the core of Swinging to the Bass. Dancing, sexy Piazzolla, Edgar Meyer’s Blue Grass, the Czech temperament of Schulhoff and Pavel Haas’ powerful drive: all four of these works convey a swinging energy into the concert hall that will make the atmosphere shimmer.
