Bass Tunes (Seven Bass Tunes with piano accompaniment)

Bass TunesBass Tunes is a collection of 17 solos for young double bassists with accompaniments for bass teachers or advanced students. The Tunes can be also used for duets in performance. Additionally, a booklet of optional piano accompaniments for seven of the Tunes in included. Editor's note: "It was with pleasure that I learned that Paul Ramsier, one of the most prolific composers of music for the double bass, had turned his attention to that great desert tract of bass repertoire: music for the young player. Since the conception of each Tune was delimited by a specific fingering idea, I have indicated fingerings to show the student where a piece is meant to lie."

 

 

Four Ramsier Favorites (DVD)

Four Ramsier FavoritesFour critically acclaimed works for double bass are performed in the Sarasota Orchestra's Holley Hall by a virtuoso bassist with the composer at the piano. These bass standards are Three Lyric Pieces (in three movements); Silent Movie (seven short movements); The Low-Note Blues, and the major work Divertimento Concertante on a Theme of Couperin (seven movements). A musical postscript is added: an optional way to perform Valse Cinematic from the Divertimento. These compositions are played on orchestra-tuned bass.
