This second and last volume completes two different sets of string quartets: the four so-called Solo Quartets by Franz Anton Hoffmeister and Gioachino Rossini’s six String Sonatas (or Sonate a quattro). Both sets differ from the ‘normal’ configuration in that they allow a double bass to take part, albeit in different roles. Rossini, who composed his sonatas at the age of 12 (!), left out the viola and gave the double bass a more or less conventional bass role – apart from the occasional virtuosic outburst. On the present recording, it is the Dutch player Niek de Groot who takes up Hoffmeister’s challenge in the company of a Finnish trio consisting of Minna Pensola, Antti Tikkanen and Tuomas Lehto.

Minna Pensola (violin I), Antti Tikkanen (violin II/ viola), Tuomas Lehto (cello) & Niek de Groot (double bass). BBC Music Magazine, April 2019 Mor. elease Date: 1st Feb 2019. Catalogue No: BIS2318. Label: BIS. Length: 76 minutes.

Minna Pensola, Antti Tikkanen, Tuomas Lehto & Niek de Groot - Rossini: Sonatas for Strings Nos. 1 & 2. The works gathered here hail from two different sets of string quartets: the four so-called Solo Quartets by Franz Anton Hoffmeister and Gioachino Rossini’s six String Sonatas (or Sonate a quattro). Both sets differ from the ‘normal’ configuration in that they allow a double bass to take part, albeit in different ways.

Dutch bassist Niek de Groot is one of today's leading classical double bass players. Since 1996, Niek has been a senior professor of double bass at the 'Folkwang University of Arts' in Essen, Germany. He is the first ‘French bow’ bassist to hold such a position in Germany. The second Rossini-Hoffmeister CD is released at BIS Records. Jonathan Hoff, Jungstudent at Folkwang, won the first round of Jugend Musiziert with the maximum of 25 points and will continue for the Landes Wettbewerb in March. Ulysse Vigreux, Folkwang Alumni, won the solo-position in the Orchestra de Paris!! 1. 9. Partners here will be Minna Pensola and Antti Tikkanen of the transcendent Meta4 quartet and wonderful cellist Tuomas Lehto.
