Price £7.50

A very well constructed brief 'serious' work, this short pieces offers effective and accessible music for the intermediate bassist, using almost a three octave range, with scope to demonstrate a range of sounds, colours and moods. Two editions included together - for solo double bass or for 2 or more bassists.

"Erkon Elegia is accessible to advanced beginning bassists with the ability to perform with confidence into the lower thumb positions." [ISB]

"Erkon Elegia is a versatile little piece that can be played as a solo, duo, trio or ensemble. In only 49 bars, and using elementary music, Hauta-aho manages to use many of his trademark compositional characteristics...it's friendly geography and varied colourscape should prove popular with beginning bassists." [Double Bassist]
