VAŇHAL (also: Vanhall, Vanhal, Wanhal, Van Hall), Johann Baptist
Concerto for double bass and orchestra, solo part in D major - HISTORICAL SOURCE (complete part, incl. tuttis in the appendix).
Originally composed and carefully adapted for "Viennese tuning", this frequently played work is at times quite problematic to transpose on a modern double bass tuned in fourths. Here is a worthy alternative for the soloists in D major, which has a bit better compatibility with the original than the variant in C major. The differences in direct comparison to the more frequently played variant in C major:

  • some octaves are lower than in the historical source, the manuscript of J. M. Sperger and sound more "bassy", in the natural register of the double bass
  • in the performance of the entire concerto, fewer adjustments are necessary overall than in the part in C major, especially in the 3rd movement
  • in this way, depending on the tuning, the performance is likewise possible in the sounding D major, E major, but also in the original key (E-flat major), if desired: for example if the "solo tuning" is tuned a half tone lower

Complete orchestral material formatted to the highest professional standards is available in all three keys. The orchestral editions also include the historical cadenzas (composed by Václav Pichl)
