Filmed in London in March 2013, this is an excerpt from a short film by Samuel Dowd. Read more about this project here.

This is the first recording I’ve made on my gorgeous new 6-string bass by Marc Soubeyran since it was finished in November 2012. This repertoire is exactly the kind of thing I had in mind when Marc and I were discussing the instrument, which is a loose copy of a bass viol by John Rose, now in the Kessler Collection at the Royal College of Music in London.
