ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded in Venice, this is the definitive collection of Rabbath performing Bach. This collection is finally available in the US as a CD with the original cover art, photographs, and notes. For more about Rabbath's unique pedagogy, please see the DVDs Art of the Bow and Art of the Left Hand, also available on CD Baby.

From the Solstice notes:

François Rabbath was born in 1931 in Alep (Syria). At the golden age of the French song, he accompanied the greatest ones: Piaf, Aznavour, Brel, Barbara, Michel Legrand.
Interpreter and composer, he created a ‘New Technique of the Double-bass' which is an authority in the whole world. Owing to him, that one gains its own freedom in order to become a real soloist instrument. In 1963, his first double-bass disc earned him the Prix de l'Académie Charles Cros.
His recording of Bach's Suites, played on the double-bass but in the cello tessitura, constitutes not only an unprecedented achievement but, by his own admission, the crowning of his career as a musician.
