In our latest recording for Naxos, the Joyful Company of Singers joined forces with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Tom Martin to record Bottesini’s Requiem.
Giovanni Bottesini (1822 – 1899, Italy) was best known as a double bass virtuoso and his modern-day counterpart, Tom Martin has put down his bow in favour of a conductor’s baton to record Bottesini’s compositions.
In his review, The Classical Reviewer described JCS as being “on fine form” and a more in-depth review with an overview of the music can be found here.

- Marta Matheu (soprano)
- Gemma Coma-Alabert (mezzo-soprano)
