Book 1 of Recital Music's Heritage Series featuring long-forgotten music, primarily by bassist-composers of the 19th and early 20th-century. Lyrical and accessible music, mainly in the orchestral register.

"...a wonderful collection of short, intermediate-level works for double bass with piano accompaniment. The list of composers reads like a Who's Who of the Czech double bass school, including prominent pedagogues Frantisek Simandl, Gustav Laska and Ludwig Manoly. Finding double bass music that is well written and which presents lyrical melodic passages without great technical challenges is not easy, and this collection fills that gap admirably. Most of the six short pieces included here are beautifully lyrical works which show off the dark sonorous quality of the double bass....With this publication Recital Music continues to expand the double bass repertoire for players of all levels, and this important collection of forgotten music from past masters of the instrument is a gift for future generations of players."
Craig Butterfield (Double Bassist)

"...It's a pleasure to see a proliferation of this kind of chamber recital repertoire for the bass; we can't have too much of it." [ESTA News & Views]
