The Heritage Series series

The history of the double bass features many player-composers who created a wealth of music for bassists of all abilities. Recital Music publish a wide and eclectic range of music by these important figures from the history of the instrument, particularly from the 19th and early 20th-centuries, and more works are in preparation. Some names are well known today, others almost forgotten, but each made a valuable contribution to the repertoire of the double bass and helped create a unqiue repertoire which deserves to be performed.

Danish virtuoso Ludvig Hegner (1851-1923) composed a number of lyrical solos for double bass and Recital Music is planning to publish several more as part of its ongoing 'Heritage Series'.

Hegner's style is traditional and accessible, using the entire range of the solo double bass, including effective harmonics and double stops. This is salon and characteristic music to enjoy and the edition includes piano accompaniments for both solo and orchestral tunings. Recorded by Per Knudsen.

"It is refreshing to find a solo piece that covers much of the range of the bass...This piece could be an excellent introduction to playing double stops." (ISB)
