Reinagle: Sonatine G major (Double Bass, Piano)
With its appealing melody and classical style, this music closes a major gap in the beginner's literature for double bass and piano.
|Instrumentation||Double Bass, Piano|
Joseph Reinagle (1762-1825), pupil of the well-known cellist Johann Georg Schetky, was a versatile musician and composer. In 1800 he published 'A Concise Introduction to the Playing of the Violoncello' from which the three movements of the Sonatina have been taken. With its appealing melody and classical style, this music closes a major gap in the beginner's literature for double bass and piano. Reinagle's Sonatina is highly recommended for pupils' concerts and competitions. The musical text is based on the text of the first edition, using the original bowing and phrasing. Dynamic indications have been added by the editor as suggestions for lessons.
