TCHAIKOVSKY | Souvenir de Florence op.70 | DOUBLE BASS AS SEVENTH

TCHAIKOVSKY | String sextet "Souvenir de Florence" op. 70 | DOUBLE BASS AS SEVENTH INSTRUMENT
FILE FORMAT: PDF | 300 dpi
RELEASE: final
SCORES: only Double Bass | 13 pages
SCORDATURA: in C | GDAE (orchestral tuning) a 5-string instrument tuned to the low B is recommended
SOURCE: own arrangement  |  extra double bass part constructed by Božo Paradžik
OTHER PARTS: 2 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos (not included)
COMMENT: this is my own construction of the seventh voice, thus this score turns this great composition into a septet. The double bass has its own enterances in suitable moments of the piece and sometimes its own melodic line (all added extras in the part are always marked with "solo"): I've done it like I supposed Tchaikowski would also handle a seventh instrument. Sometimes the double bass voice plays a melody unisono in a sixth (once with the 1st violin in the 2nd movement) or in a lower third (once with the 1st viola in the 3rd movement), otherwise it has numerous own very short appearances as the main voice in the 1st and 4th movement when the similar thematic motives are randomly appearing between all the other voices. In many cases, it accompanies the ensemble with pizzicatos, sometimes as low as the 2nd violoncello, sometimes an octave lower, particulary in the spots where just a bit of gained wideness brings enrichment in a volume and sound color of the low register. I think the low register never disturbs, although it might be also matter of taste. It took me lot of testing until the final result is now released. The score contains the letters on the identic spots like the common editions as well as the bar numbers.
