A number of Haydn's symphonies feature solos for double bass, or more accurately the violine, and this book brings together all six solos into one volume. The accompaniments are simple and straightforward, making it much easier for bassists to learn the pieces in context. The music is tuneful, accessible and enjoyable.
The edition includes a short programme note about each symphony and the book is ideal for any Grade 7/8 bassist who is studying a range of orchestral repertoire.
Each solo could be played in a recital or concert, but the book is also a useful teaching resource which combines solo playing within the orchestral world.
