Bottesini: Fantasy on "La Sonnambula" (3)

Mark Morton (Other)

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Double Bass soloist in a performance of my re-construction of Giovanni Bottesini's original full orchestration of his Fantasy on Themes from Bellini's "La Sonnambula." This is likely the first performance of this original orchestration for full winds, brass, timpani and strings since the composer's death 128 years ago. This reconstruction is from Bottesini's original orchestral parts housed in the Bibliotheca Palatina in Parma, Italy, and is a fruition of my taking almost 3000 photographs of his original manuscripts and parts.
