An inventive and accessible pizzicato work for the good beginner bassist looking for something a little different. The three contrasting movements remain in the orchestral register, with space for optional improvisation in the third piece. Ideal for any bassist who enjoyed Jazz Sonatine No.1 (RM097 Pizzicato Pieces Book 1) and enjoys playing in a jazzy and rhythmic style. A simple drum beat could be added for extra effect or simply enjoy the great music written with a minimum of fuss or effort.
Effective in performance and certainly 'cool'. A great piece for study or recital and a pizzicato work which offers much for performer and audience alike. Enjoy....
