Edicson Ruiz – Koussevitzky Concerto

Here’s bassist Edicson Ruiz playing the Koussevitzky concerto for double bass with Le Dude conducting. Ruiz is also a product of El Sistema and became a full member of the Berliner Philharmoniker 7 years ago, aged 18.

Musically, the concerto isn’t all that great but Ruiz makes it sound like top drawer material. Whatever they’re doing down there in Venezuela seems to work wonders.
