Edgar Meyer - Master of the Double Bass

Broadway Center Presents

Three-time Grammy Award winner Edgar Meyer has won remarkable acclaim both for the music he has written and for an inexhaustible variety of recordings and live performances with everyone from the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to Garth Brooks, James Taylor, and Yo-Yo Ma. He’s been called “the best bassist alive” by San Diego Magazine. In this solo recital, you’ll hear classical music in Act I and contemporary with bluegrass in Act II. Meyer has performed with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Symphony under Seiji Ozawa, and was even commissioned to write a piece for violin and piano to be performed by Joshua Bell. Edgar Meyer is hailed by The New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively un-chronicled history of his instrument [the double bass].”
