Giovanni Bottesini was a double bass virtuoso, composer and conductor (he conducted the world premiere of Verdi's "Aida" in Cairo in 1871). His solo concertos are full-length three-movement works which offer the double bass player, who is truly not spoiled with original pieces, all the performance techniques and effects his heart desires.
Breitkopf's edition is based on the autographic sources. The solo part, however, has been supplied with bowings and fingerings for practical use.
