One of the greatest living exponents on Double Bass and a legend among his peers, Mr. Quarrington joins the orchestra for Giovanni Bottesini's Elegy and Grande Allegro.

Born in Toronto, Joel Quarrington began studying the Double Bass at the Royal Conservative of Music when he was thirteen. Subsequent studies took him to Italy and Austria. After more than a decade leading the bass sections in the Hamilton Philharmonic and later the Canadian Opera Company, he assumed the position of Principal Double Bass of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Most recently, he was appointed Principal Double Bass with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. As well as winning many awards for his performances, Joel released his latest CD, Virtuoso Reality, in March 1999
