Description

Double Bass Solo Techniques combines the dual function of a technique book and a collection of orchestral excerpts. The techniques are introduced in a logical order, and each is preceded by a short explanatory note, providing technical advice and tips on performance. The repertoire has been carefully selected to showcase the technique in its real musical context, and the pieces cover all major styles and genres. Ideal as preparation for auditions and exams.
