Back to Buxtehude. One of my colleagues at the "hobby" forum has a travel channel on YouTube, where he documents his visits to English stately homes, churches, castles and the like (see link below). The background music to his latest trip was the Trio Sonata Op.2 No.3 in G minor (BuxWV 261). I'm sure this was inspired by my spate of Buxtehude posts over there--and now it's come full circle (with grateful thanks). Wink

I'd known the name Henriėtte Bosmans from numerous streets named after her but wasn't familiar with the music of this 20th-century Dutch composer. Yesterday I heard the searching slow movement from her String Quartet (1927), which was quite a revelation. Here is the entire work:

I heard this work for double bass and orchestra earlier today on Dutch radio, more specifically this finale with Domenic Seldis as soloist.

I've always been fascinated by instruments whose range descends lower than that of the cello or bassoon. And of course it was once rare to hear double basses or a double bassoon not doubling the cellos or bassoons. Berlioz changed all that, maybe even Beethoven before him.

This is dedicated to JH.
