CBC video special – Miloslav Gajdos • 08.19.07
This is an amazing off-the-cuff performance from Miloslav Gajdos playing and singing (both parts at the same time!) Mozart’s “Per Questa Bella Mano” on the double bass. He was experiencing jet lag and playing on a borrowed bass, but one would never know if from watching this video! The bass in this video was provided by sonksenstrings.com. This trip was coordinated by Lyric Opera of Chicago and Northeastern Illinois bass professor Greg Sarchet in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the first bass recital in Chicago. Check out Greg at Bass Club Chicago, and stay tuned for more great episodes featuring Miloslav Gajdos!
