Description

Le Départ, originally for cello and piano, was first published in 1920 by Joseph Williams Limited (Great Portland Street, London), a year after the composer’s death.

Typical of the salon and characteristic music of the early 20th-century, the piece is lyrical and accessible, transcribing well for the double bass and is ideal for the intermediate bassist. This edition includes solo parts for violoncello (use piano accompaniment marked orchestral tuning) or double bass, playable in solo or orchestral tuning, and is a useful addition to the intermediate transcription repertoire.

This edition includes piano accompaniments for both solo and orchestral tunings.

About the Composer

Charles Harford Lloyd (1849-1919) was an English composer and organist. He was a fairly prolific composer, primarily of church music, and was organist of Gloucester Cathedral, Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford and Eton College Chapel. Between 1887 and 1892 Lloyd taught organ and composition at the Royal College of Music in London and after his retirement from Eton was appointed organist of the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace

About the Arranger

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.
