Description

Danse Caprice is in one extended movement and emphasises the lyrical, and cantabile qualities of the double bass throughout its solo register. The style is late- romantic and accessible, probably written at the end of the 19th-century, with a strongly independent and supportive piano accompaniment.

C

̌erný’s music is always beautifully written for the double bass and the title echoes the dance-like style, in waltz time, with capricious energy and effervescence throughout.

This edition includes accompaniments for both solo and orchestral tuning.

About the Editor

David Heyes (b.1960) studied double bass with Laurence Gray and Bronwen Naish, later at the Royal College of Music in London, and completed his post-graduate studies in Prague with František Pošta (Principal Bass, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra). He has given recitals and masterclasses in 20 countries over the past few years and has been a juror at a number of international competitions, three times as chairman. David’s collaborative work gained him a prestigious award from the David Walter Charitable Trust of New York for his pioneering activities as a soloist, teacher, publisher, and commissioner of new music for double bass and he works with composers throughout the world to expand the double bass repertoire by commissioning new music and by rediscovering forgotten ones. Since 1983 more than 700 works have been written for him, music from one to twenty basses and from beginner to virtuoso, and he has premiered ten contemporary concertos with orchestra. David began to compose in 2013 and has had music performed and recorded in 29 countries across five continents. He is a D’Addario Performing Artist and has recently commissioned a solo double bass from British master-luthier Martin Penning.
