HAL LEONARD
12 Waltzes for Double Bass Solo (Double Bass Solo)
Model: 51480847

We have uncovered a true delight for double bass players: a collection of twelve stylized waltzes by Beethoven's contemporary Domenico Dragonetti. The “Paganini of the double bass” grew up in Venice, but moved to London as an adult. It is there that he probably wrote the twelve waltzes. They are quite likely the earliest surviving works for double bass solo. These charming pieces have until now not been published in their entirety. Despite their virtuosic impression, the technical hurdles can be comfortably mastered; the pieces are therefore not only suited for the concert hall but are also perfect encores. This quality Urtext edition is thus able to fill a true gap in the repertoire.

Double Bass Concerto: Double Bass with Piano Reduction
Model: 51480979

Following Dittersdorf (51480759) and Hoffmeister (51480721), Johann Baptist Vanhal and his sole double-bass concerto add a further highlight to the classical bass literature in Henle's catalog. The virtuoso work was transmitted only in a copy of a part owned by the famous double-bass player Johannes Sperger (1750-1812) and found in his estate, which raises a few questions on account of the many later additions in the solo part (especially concerning the octave transpositions). In Henle's Urtext edition, Tobias Glöckler proposes a solution to this dilemma with a musical text that is outstandingly well-prepared for the performing artist. The piano reduction is printed in two keys (C and D major), which allows for performances in the solo and orchestral tuning or, at will. Moreover an additional part, written in fingering notation, has been specially designed for use with the “Viennese tuning” customary in Vanhal's days. It allows players to use this resonant historical tuning immediately without tedious retraining.

Double Bass Concerto E Major Krebs 172: Double Bass and Piano
Model: 51480759

With this cornerstone of the double bass repertoire we continue a still young but important part of our catalogue. This musically-charming work, full of technical trickery, is with justification demanded time and again as a test piece or set piece for competitions. In order to accommodate the “Viennese tuning” used at the time, we also provide a solo part in fret notation. The piano part in D major and E major (!) can be used to accompany the doublebass part either in its solo or orchestral version. As an alternative to the familiar cadenzas by Sperger, editor Tobias Glöckler has added two further tuneful and stylistically-appropriate cadenzas of his own.
