About the Series

The Bass Clef series began in 2021 and is an ongoing project to provide solo and ensemble repertoire in the orchestral register of the instrument for the progressing double bassist. Each book will include original works and transcriptions in a breadth of styles and idioms, which are suitable for both study and concert use.

The Bass Clef series, featuring books for one, two, three, or four double basses, is ideal for bassists looking for interesting repertoire which is idiomatic and enjoyable, possibly also challenging, but is also worth the effort.

About Bass Clef Unaccompanied Solos Book 1

All the works are composed, transcribed, or edited by David Heyes.

The legendary Finnish bassist-composer Teppo Hauta-aho once said that a piece of music "doesn't have to be virtuosic to be good" and there is so much scope to write and transcribe exciting and evocative music that remains in bass clef.
