Fascinatingly harmonious sounds established beyond the common tone orders are the specialty of California-based German composer Wolfgang von Schweinitz (born 1956). After his highly acclaimed 2013 recording of "Plainsound Glissando Modulation" for violin and double bass (NEOS 10812CD, German Music Critics' Award) Frank Reinecke -- one of today's foremost double bass virtuosos -- has now dedicated himself to another cornerstone of recent music history: "Plainsound Counterpoint" for solo double bass from 2010-2011. In these seven breathtakingly beautiful concert studies, a previously unheard wealth of harmonic and melodic intervals unfolds along the plain harmonic series. A second program on this CD consists of the double bass solo work "Mirror" by American composer Catherine Lamb (born 1982), who today lives in Berlin. Her composition, says Reinecke, "celebrates the different tone colors of two-part-sounds in just intonation, with all its synergetic meldings and rotating beats."
