Two More Nights to Hear This Double Bass Virtuoso

Edgar Meyer gave his first of three concerts with the Oregon Symphony last evening in the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. He played: Bottesini: Bass Concerto No. 2 and Meyer: Bass Concerto No. 1.

From the OR Symphony Website, "America’s best-known master of the double bass, the charismatic Edgar Meyer, joins the orchestra in a pair of concertos never before performed by the Oregon Symphony: one by the great 19th-century master of the instrument – and one of his very own. "

If you have heard him before you will want to hear this. If you haven't heard him you are in for a treat.
