About the Collection

Bass Clef Solos is a new series featuring fifty original works and transcriptions for the intermediate and progressing double bassist. Divided into five books, each piece offers both musical and technical challenges in the orchestral range of the instrument, remaining in bass clef throughout, which are ideal for both study or concert use. 

Edited by David Heyes, the series will include music from the 16th to the 20th-century, in a range of styles and idioms, with something to suit most tastes. Each piece has been carefully selected for the series, with piano accompaniments that are supportive and accessible, creating an exciting and innovative collection that should appeal to bassists of all ages. 

Book 1 includes works arranged by David Heyes (b.1960), Ludvig Hegner (1851-1923), Gustav Láska (1847-1928) and František Simandl (1840-1912).
