About This Performance

For some time, PCMS and Harold Robinson have discussed a program that would showcase the double bass. His prior PCMS appearances have resulted in pleas from audiences to hear more from this magnificent artist in repertoire that displays his superb musicianship as well as the integrity of his playing. Of particular note is Prokofiev’s Quintet. Derived from his unpublished ballet Trapèze, it is highly “modern,” uncompromisingly dissonant, and quirky in form. It demands a very high level of virtuosity from all the players, most notably from the double bass.
