The Transcriptions Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.

Originally for flute and from a set of twelve, these three Fantasias transcribe well for double bass and explore much of the range of the instrument. Octaves have been changed to suit the double bass but each Fantasia offers a useful introduction into Baroque music for the progressing intermediate bassist. There are musical and technical challenges in equal measure and opportunities for the bassist to explore a range of colours and timbres, and to develop skills at creating an architectural and overall shape of a work when there is no accompaniment.
