SOURCE: composer's original composition for solo piano | arranged for double bass & piano
COMMENTS: Originated after an excellent arrangement of my gifted student Timothée Methou, this composition, which Johannes Brahms originally wrote for piano solo, gets here a very convincing sounding alternative in the arrangement for double bass and piano. The tonal characteristics of the double bass are fully exploited here, even in the very low register, which is often neglected in its solo literature. This arrangement is an ideal introduction to Brahms literature for double bass players. Although an ability to produce superb, very resonant tone is a must for the performance of this work (as well as for most of other works composed by Johannes Brahms), it is much shorter and also technically less difficult than the arrangements of the Brahms sonatas. This edition includes four variants of the solo double bass part, for different scordaturas. With either variant, the piece will sound in the original key at the end. In my opinion, it is particularly advantageous to perform it in the orchestral tuning, ideally on a 5-string with a "high C" string (as, for example, Renaud Garcia Fons does), so as not to miss out the low notes and at the same time to have naturally vibrating and clear sounding instrument in the high register.
