Bass player William McGregor stunned all the violinists, violists, and cellists by winning the Gold Medal at the 2017 Stulberg International Competition. He’ll stun us with this 18th-century concerto by Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf, and the virtuoso Moses Variations by Niccolò Paganini. With two other bass-focused works on the program, Jonathan Palevsky livens the proceedings with his always entertaining annotated narration.
