Frome Concerts Group Presents… Duo Domenico
Sunday 29th January
Duo Domenico explores the 17th-century music written for the rich diversity of four-, five- and six-stringed bass instruments of the period. Named after Domenico Gabrielli, the first composer to publish works naming the violoncello as a solo instrument, the duo delve into his works and those of his contemporaries, and experiment with bizarre tuning systems along the way; they also happily take on the technical — and musical — challenges set by ‘cello virtuosi such as Boccherini, Barrière and Abel, ensuring that the upper reaches of the instrument’s range are put to good use.
