Leon Bosch double bass
Rebeca Omordia piano
I Musicanti

Leon Bosch’s programme showcases the double bass in all its glory, from a virtuoso solo instrument to a thrilling ensemble player. The performance is bookended by Bosch’s own acclaimed ensemble ‘I Musicanti’, opening the concert with the London première of Bottesini's Grand Quintet in C minor and closing the evening with Dvorák's Op. 77. In between, he is joined by the award-winning pianist Rebecca Omordia, and will play a stirring commission by Roxanna Panufnik, which incorporates traditional miner's songs from South Africa where Bosch was born, Leon's own transcription of Beethoven's Horn Sonata Op. 17 and the unashamedly virtuosic fantasy on theme’s from Bellini’s ‘La Sonambula’ by Bottesini.
