    How times have changed. A conductor for Corona-virus era, perhaps.

    By the way, George, I meant to tell you, I’ve discovered a wonderful double bass player, an Italian called Steffano Scodanibbio. Avant garde music - I discovered him via some Scelsi - but very good.

    My double bass hero is the late Franticek Posta, who for decades was the first bass in the Czech Phil, as well as being a wonderful soloist on his instrument.

    This is only a little bit of fun, but it does show his superb musicianship and his more or less peerless ability to make the old dog kennel sound the equal in expression of any of the violin family.

    Of the English bass players Rodney Slatford knew Posta well, and one day offered him to play his own best double bass. As Slatford commented afterwards, it made him wonder why he had ever chosen the instrument as a career! For the first time Posta had made Slatford's bass sound, "correct!"

    Best wishes from George
