COMMENTS: My ex teacher, Prof. Jiří Hudec has gotten once back in the 80's by the widow of František Hertl a box full of Mr Hertl's music, including many of his handwritten, unpublished compositions. With friendly, exclusive permission by František Hertl's daughter, Ms Květa Hertlová, this release can finally happen now. It makes me very happy and proud to give my contribution to the enrichment of the concert literature for the double bass, this time only as publisher and editor- with the original František Hertl's collection of 30 miniatures for double bass and piano. These short pieces have never been released before, this is world's first release. Jiří Hudec has spent countless hours in the past few years to carefully enter the composers text into the scoring software. This sheet music includes first six of total 30 short pieces. My original wish was to publish all of them at once, but the last part of work on the scores costs me far more effort and time than expected. For that reason, this release will be done stepwise, with six numerically following pieces in the each next step. The pieces have been composed as-is in the original piano score in C, without composer's remark if the double bass should be tuned in the scordatura C or in D (usually Hertl's preferred one). I have decided to transpose the double bass part for both popular ways of double bass tuning. But here, in this luxory first release there also also two versions of the piano part: the original one, as well as a one-tone-higher one. So all the combinations of different tunings are possible, upon performer's preference. The only thing changed is that the transposed scores sometimes contain just a little enharmonical changes, for easier reading.
After all 30 pieces will be released in five parts, there will be -of course- a complete release of 30 miniatures.
