With Jason Heath · San Francisco, CA

Thanks to the bassists that took the time to chat with me for this video:

  • John Van Lierop – Principal Bass in the Sinfonia Rotterdam and frequent guest principal bass in many European orchestras
  • Thomas Fiorini – double bassist in the Brussels Philharmonic
  • Aaron Olguin – Principal Bass in Norway’s Trondheim Symphony
  • Cory Palmer – Principal Bass in the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra
