Bottesini Magic

In association with St. Andrew's Brighton
Music Foundation Concerts

Bottesini was considered the Paganini of the Double Bass, developing a formidable technique for the instrument and composing numerous solo works. We are thrilled to welcome back the equally virtuosic Phoebe Russell to play his second concerto. In 2010, Phoebe was Zelman Symphony’s youngest section leader and youngest invited soloist ever. She has since embarked on a stellar career so far culminating in being a member of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Academy, and as a frequent casual player with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and numerous other European orchestras – light years from her start in Zelman Symphony!

The concert opens with Tchaikovsky’s The Tempest Fantasy Overture which is based on the Shakespearian play, and closes with Brahms’ Symphony No. 2, a contemplative and exuberant work which he wrote in less than a year, a distinct contrast with the 15 years he took to write his first symphony!
