Duettino Basso II

Price £9.50

A lively and communicative work which is played pizzicato throughout.

Bass 1 plays in the solo register - including thumb position - and Bass 2 remains firmly in the orchestral register. This piece is always successful in performance and there are musical and technical challenges to keep everyone happy.

"Hauta-aho composed this in 1996, calling chiefly on his expertise as a jazz bassist... he keeps the textures perky by maintaining soloist/rhythm section feel, with the top part hogging the lion's share of the tunes in the first half...the duet ends with an unthreatening opportunity for both players to improvise." (Double Bassist)

Teppo Hauta-aho is the most prolific composer of music for the double bass ever and has written music for every level of performer - complete beginner to virtuoso. His music is performed and taught worldwide and a growing number of easier pieces are now included by the international examination boards.
