Book of the Week

I just read “The Double-Bass” by Patrick S�skind (author of the famous bestseller “Perfume”). It is a short one-person monologue from a double-bass player about his relationship with the double bass. He is quite frustrated, because nobody notices him, there are no solos for double-bass. The double bass is his friend, beloved and enemy. He thinks the double bass prevents him, from living a better life.
In December I had seen an excellent performance by Wolfgang Hartmann in Hamburg. He is performing “The Double-Bass” since 18 years.
