G.F. Handel's Concerto in G minor, originally for oboe, was first transcribed for double bass by Frantisek Simandl (1840-1912) in the late 19th-century. This new arrangement by David Heyes, incorporating some of the Simandl edition, restores some of the missing bars from the earlier edition and returns to the original version to create a work of rhythmic energy and character for the 21st-century.
The four contrasting movements offer effective musical and technical challenges for the good intermediate bassist (Grade 8+) and would make a suitable recital or study work for any player working in thumb position. Handel's Concerto in G minor would fit easily into any concert, is suitable for any audience, and demonstrates the many sonorous and technical solo possibilities of the double bass. This edition is for orchestral tuning and other editions in solo tuning or with string orchestra accompaniment are in preparation.
