Price £6.50

Duettino Basso V is dedicated to David Heyes, Ben Groenevelt and Alberto Bocini. In one extended movement, it contrasts jazz, classical and contemporary styles alongside arco and pizzicato, employing much of the range of the double bass, and lasting around 3-4 minutes.

Bass 1 plays arco primarily, usually in treble clef often employing simple but evocative and atmospheric melodies in harmonics. Bass 2 plays exclusively pizzicato and underpins the piece with a strongly direct and confident jazz-inspired syncopated accompaniment. The contrasting musical styles creates a work of great imagination and skill, typical of the music of Teppo Hauta-aho, and Duettino Basso V follows a line of successful double bass duets which would be suitable for any audience or occasion.

There are few technical challenges for the good intermediate bass duo but scope to create and explore many soundscapes and musical landscapes, demonstrating the possibilities of the double bass.
