Contrabass, piano
Composed by Giovanni Bottesini (1821-1889). Edited by Klaus Trumpf.

Double-bass virtuoso Giovanni Bottesini (1821-1889) was at home on concert stages at home and abroad. He compiled his own repertoire by writing his own pieces, which were mostly rather short and in one movement.

Today's soloists will enjoy the tuneful melodies and brilliant passagework.
While preparing the present edition, the editor consulted the autographs that are now housed in the library of the Parma Conservatory. Some of the pieces are also filed with orchestral scores or string parts. This confirms that Bottesini performed these works with orchestral accompaniment as well.
The present edition notates the solo part in the double-bass notation customary today. The piano part has been arranged for the solo tuning F sharp - B - E - A that is common today.
