The Transcriptions Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.


Originally arranged in the 1980s for The Col Legno Double Bass Ensemble in London and newly edited in 2007, this Baroque 'classic' offers effective challenges for the good intermediate quartet and would be ideal for any concert or occasion.

The majority of the melodic material is played by Bass 1, with wonderful contrapuntal writing for Bass 2 and 3, grounded by an evocative and iconic pizzicato bass line. Two parts are included for Bass 4 - allowing the piece to be played in solo or orchestral tuning, or half and half.
