"Silence followed the final note as Jeff Bradetich completed an encore...those seconds of stillness were a tribute: When something is perfect, you can't bear to let it end."
- Eugene Register-Guard (Oregon)
"Jeff Bradetich used the double bass to give a lesson in musical phrasing that would have been valuable...to anybody who has an interest in stringing notes together to make music."
- Austin American-Statesman (Texas)
"His playing had force and elegance, and he produced a remarkably clean, clear sound."
- New York Times
January 17, 2012Happy New Year!
Hello All and Happy New Year! Can you believe it..here we are in the year 2012 and guess what? We are still finding that the majority of string/orchestra competitions do not include the double bass. How could this be?? Well, there's good news. We are continuously working on exciting initiatives and events and one of them is the next Bradetich International Double Bass Solo Competition, which will take place in 2014. Details of the competition will be announced in the Fall on this year to give everyone plenty of time to prepare. Stay Tuned!
