The Urtext edition of what is arguably the most often played double-bass work of all was long overdue. The work was previously available only in an abridged and arranged form. The edition departs from the sole extant source, a set of parts from the estate of the composer and double-bass virtuoso Johannes Sperger. The score and orchestral parts as well as the piano reduction are printed in E major as well as D major so as to make the work playable both in orchestral or Viennese tuning as well as in solo tuning. The piano reduction contains additional cadenzas by the editor.
“I hope players will convert to this edition.”
(Clifford Bartlett, in: Early Music Review, No. 142, June 2011)
“An exciting addition to the bassist’s library. This definitive score will assist teachers and performers alike.”
(Marian Heckenburg, AUSTA Stringendo)
