Miniatures for double bass & piano
A beautiful collection of "miniatures" for double bass and piano. Perfect for early intermediate and intermediate students. Each short piece was written using a modal scale(the selected scale is presented before the music). Piano is simple, but very effective. Very musical collection indeed!
