Picture of Sheet music  for double bass and piano. A lyrical and accessible solo for the intermediate bassist by James Haydn Waud. Ideal for developing a sonorous and lyrical sound in the orchestral register.

James Haydn Waud was a leading orchestral bassist of his day and was one of the first professors of double bass at the Guildhall School of Music. This has been out of print for over 80 years and this new edition offers a cantabile and approachable salon solo for the intermediate bassist.

"Reverie is a charming salon piece in the bel canto style, though without substantial decorative coloratura that is common in the Italianate repertoire...a pleasant melody with a little rhythmic variety and lies within the orchestral register." [ESTA News and Views]

"...Reverie contains all the hallmarks of a pedagogical piece written in the late-19th century - it is flowingly lyrical, melodramatic, in clear ternary (ABA) form (complete with a key change in the middle section), written within the traditional orchestral register...As a teaching piece it is valuable for students preparing to play the Capuzzi Concerto, as it is not as substantial in length or difficulty." [Double Bassist]
