with host Fred Child

: Rossini's unusual duet

Cello and Double Bass from Music Skanner

Gioacchino Rossini wrote an unusual string duet in 1824, which was played ONCE...and then disappeared for a century and a half. It's a duet for cello and double bass, and it's now back in circulation. On today's show, hear Joel Dallow and Karl Fenner of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra play Rossini's unusual duet.
