Solo double bass debut – Dan Styffe

Double bass players are a heroic race, conquering an instrument with extensive amplitude and physical dimensions. On his debut recording as a soloist, Dan Styffe – principal bass player with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra – proves to be not only heroic, but also a sensitive and extremely nuanced musician. In the solo works on this disc – including works by such profiles as Isang Yun, Hans Werner Henze and Luciano Berio – Styffe displays both power and finesse. Chamber music by Alfred Schnittke and Sofia Gubaidulina is also part of this journey into the lower registers.
