François Rabbath 1931-
Classical Upright Pedagogue/Solist/Composer/Badass
To start things off, here’s a clip of François being a badass/throwing an upright out of a window.
Born in Aleppo, Syria into a musical family François, taught himself bass at the age of thirteen. He continued studying at the Paris Conservatory where he quickly surpassed his teachers and established his solo career. His three-volume double bass method, Nouvelle technique de la contrebasse, smashed the previous technical limitations of bass, became standard reading for bassists worldwide, and started generations of new virtuosi.
A short composition by Rabbath called Iberique Peninsulare, performed by Volkan Orhan.
