Cuatro Basso, a double bass quartet comprised of students in the Music Department’s DMA program, graciously shared their talents during a lunchtime performance today. The double bass, with its wide range in register and percussive qualities, lends itself well to quartet arrangements of slow melodic tunes like Samuel Barber’s Adagio, and Harold Arlen’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” or faster more syncopated music like “Baby You Can Drive My Car,” by the Beatles. Passersby appreciated the unique sight and sounds of the ensemble. Thanks guys for playing!
