In the 18th century, acclaimed soloist Josef Kämpfer wandered Europe with his massive double bass—which was nicknamed "Goliath"—only to later disappear from the pages of history. Celebrating this Hungarian prodigy's colorful life, Grigory Krotenko performs Mozart's concert aria "Per Questa bella mano" alongside Ilya Mazurov and Barocco Concertato. Here too are works for double bass associated with Kämpfer by Vanhal, Sperger, and Hoffmeister.
