A short and lively miniature for the good intermediate bassist from this leading 19th-century bassist-composer. There are effective musical and technical challenges and it would be ideal for the post-Grade 8 player.

Three Fantasias arranged for unaccompanied double bass by David Heyes. Each offers musical and technical challenges in equal measure for the good intermediate bassist (Grade 8+). Great fun and much to offer in performance.
