Bottesini’s Concerto No. 1 is an often-overlooked part of the composer’s output, overshadowed by the much more popular Concerto No. 2. However, this work is brimming with expression and virtuosity, and deserves to be heard just as much as Botteisni’s other compositions. In this new edition by Dominik Wagner, the performer is helped by the inclusion of suggested fingerings and bowings, though a clean copy without these is included. Piano accompaniment parts are available in both orchestral and solo tuning for ease of performing in either key.
