Rare audio of Koussevitsky performing his Doublebass Concerto- mvt. 2

I’m delighted to reference this rare audio of doublebassist and conductor Serge Koussevitsky (1874-1951) performing the 2nd movement of his own Concerto for Doublebass.  It’s always helpful to hear how the composer envisions his composed work, and this is no exception with the romantic qualities, portamento shifts, and use of harmonics in the upper range of the instrument near the end of the movement.
