Some musicians are so remarkable that the word virtuoso is simply inadequate. Double bassist, Edgar Meyer, is one such musician.
Unrivalled in the music world due to his masterful technique, Meyer is in demand as both a performer and a composer, appealing to a wide and varied audience.
In this special free concert, Queensland Music Festival and the ABC Classic FM’s Sunday Recital program present Meyer in a double bass recital of stellar proportions, showing that indeed, he is uniquely gifted. This performance will be broadcast live from Studio 420.
As well as being known as an award-winning solo bassist, Meyer has performed and collaborated with acclaimed orchestras and artists around the world such as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, St Pauls Chamber Orchestra, cellist Yo Yo Ma, and mandolinist Chris Thile.
