March from the NutcrackerTchaikovsky's holiday classic is now here for your bass quartet in this charming arrangement. Parts 1 & 2 are fairly advanced, covering most of the range of the bass, while parts 3 & 4 are very accessible to the intermediate player. This makes it perfect for teachers wanting to include students in their quartet. The tempo is flexible and is up to the performers. I suggest a tempo slower than the original. Feel free to make adjustments and changes as needed to suit the performers. Have fun with it! It is sure to surprise and delight the listeners.
Bottesini ReverieOrchestral tuned accompaniment for Bottesini's Reverie. Accompaniment only - follows traditional Fred Zimmerman edits which is the version most readily available and used. I originally did this to have the accompaniment in orchestra tuning as I couldn't find it elsewhere. As I was revising it I decided to modify it for a modern with a focus on legibility. - Engraved and designed with the accompanist in mind to be easy to read. - Only bass and treble clefs used in solo bass part - Clear measure numbers in different font - Considerations for page turns, systems, and phrasing - Tuplet font reduced and adjusted - Not all tuplet numbers are included to improve legibility. I excluded ones after notating many. ____________________________ There is a solo bass version included but it is with my edits and interpretations. - Not all triplets / tuplets have a number above or below them. Most are obvious and are excluded for legibility and leaving space for the performer to write things in. - Design and fonts chosen for legibility. - A few modern fingering suggestions have been added. - Slurs and phrasing edited for both musicality as well as maintaining a soloistic tone.
Bottesini ElegyAn arrangement of Bottesini's Elegy for bass and string orchestra. As an orchestra teacher I rarely have access to an accompanist. But I see a string orchestra every day. And I'm sure there are bassists out there are looking for something lighter than a concerto to perform with an ensemble. And thus began this arrangment of Bottesini's popular Elegy for string orchestra. It will also work well with a chamber group or quartet.
