The audition concerto in an Urtext edition - in Cooperation with Henle Verlag

The study scores (,,Studien-Editionen) remain within the G. Henle Verlag and can be ordered there.




Thanks to its imaginative richness and sterling writing Hoffmeister's Double Bass Concerto No. 1 has advanced to the rank of a popular audition concerto. But when compared with the transmitted sources the previously available first edition of 1966 proved to be filled with errors. Tobias Glockler double-bass player of the Dresdner Philharmonie now presents a reliable Urtext in this new edition. Through his competence as an instrumentalist he even goes considerably further and offers various performance possibilities: the solo part can be played not only in solo and orchestral tuning but also in the historical Viennese tuning. The C-major version which is offered on hire allows performances in orchestral tuning. The orchestral material in D major (sales material) is suited to the other two tunings.




a beautiful and easy to read score elegantly laid-out and with illuminating and informative preface notes. This concerto is among our most beautiful classical concerti lyrical and inventive. It is a great pleasure to see our classical repertoire appear in such critical editions. (Rob Nairn in Bass World)
