It's strange but very strange.
Usually I don't watch to my website Statistcs because I think there are not so important.
But I've noted one thing: there are very few visitors which download the MOST IMPORTANT BOOK ABOUT BOTTESINI that you can find in the first page about him.
I know, it's only in Italian, but probably visitors have no understood the great importance of it. In example, you can find all the works written by Bottesini but, the more important thing, it's there's written where it's possible to find them (Museum, Editor, University, Conservatory ...). Than it's possible to follow year by year what Bottesini did and played. No other book has ever been written from researchers from this point of view.
Today it's impossible to find a copy of it because it's no commerce.
So I have thought to share it with all double bass players world, because none must have secrets. I'm also a journalist and I have this conception. It's no good for our double bass.
So, don't forget it !! Just to have it in your own library ... it's not so bad !!!
"We all must thank you, Dear Vito, for your tireless work for all of us bassists!" You are doing so much for your colleagues and your art.
