Not only stunning performances but also a disc with piano only for bassists to play along.

This unique recording features Mark Morton performing the double bass and piano parts of popular works by Bottesini and Paganini on the first disc, while the second disc contains all the piano accompaniments performed by Mark Morton and is intended as a play-along disc for bassists. Hailed by critics as “a most artistic representative of the new generation developed in the last half century,” Mark Morton is on the faculty at Texas Tech University. He has performed in orchestras (principal bass of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra); been featured in recitals and as a concerto performer and was the first-prize winner of the 1990 International Society of Bassists Solo Competition. He is the author of the popular “Dr. Morton” series of double bass technique books. Morton studied at Juilliard, earning his undergraduate and graduate degrees there. He performs on a double bass made by Gennaro Vinaccio of Naples in the last quarter of the 18th century.

Review:
“This CD as a whole shows multiple sides of Gerber and provides evidence that he is a fine advocate of his own works, not only as their creator but also in performing and even in writing about them–an altogether impressive combination.” (Infodad.com)

“Morton is a fine player on both instruments, and the music is lovely…” (American Rec-ord Guide)
