In response to my recent blog about the poor string bass I received this:

Stephen Feigenbaum’s excellent piece was written for string orchestra but in order for us to feature it on the radio show he agreed to have it performed by one-on-a-part strings. As we already had a string quartet booked for this taping performing the music of Erwin Schulhoff, it was just a matter of adding a bass player to realize Stephen’s piece, hence string quartet and double bass. Not “string orchestra and double bass” as was incorrectly stated.

So there you go. The string bass is still a part of the string orchestra after all.

I know you are all breathing a sigh of relief! :-)

Many thanks to Tom Vignieri, Music Producer of From The Top, for clearing this problem up.
