The Netherlands amateur bass player
- A fine collection of pieces by Rabbath, full of melody and rhythm, each having challenges of their own.
- As usual for the Rabbath method, the price is rather high.
It would have been nice if a discography had been geen. Many of the pieces have recordings (mostly by Rabbath himself), while this is only mentioned in a few places.
Moreover, I would have liked some background on the numbers (e.g. an explanation of some titles, the year of composition, etc.)
The cover text should place the volume in the range of the entire series: vol. !-III provide the basics of Rabbath´s method, with vol. III as the basic handbook for the experienced player, full of scales and extra techniques. Vol. IV and V provide extra materials and some nice performance pieces, but are not essential for the player who wants to have an overview of Rabbath´s approach.
