Teppo Hauto-Aho: Teppo's Tunes (Double Bass/Piano Book)

Books | Double Bass

Publisher: Spartan Press
Composer: Teppo Hauta-Aho
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

4 short pieces exploring interesting and varied idioms, but always accessible and with simple and supportive piano accompaniments.

Lullaby has a gentle and lyrical melodic appeal; Sophie's Flute Song makes effective use of open strings, harmonics and pizzicato (also available with string quartet accompaniment); A Little Waltz is more extended, with some percussive accompaniment in the middle section; and A Serious Joke has a lively, rhythmic, quirky and humorous character.

This book is useful for both educational and concert repertoire and all the pieces have proved very popular with young bassists.
