Vojta Kuchynka – Two Czech Solos
for unaccompanied double bass
Edited by David Heyes

  • 1. Humoreska à la Mazurka
  • 2. Czech Polka
These two works are believed to be Kuchynka’s only works for unaccompanied double bass. They offer musical and technical challenges in equal measure for the intermediate bassist with the opportunity to demonstrate far more than simply technique. Each abounds with Slavic energy and character, exploiting the entire range of the double bass in music which encapsulates the dance-styles and exuberance of the Central Europe. An old-world charm and elegance ensure that both pieces will be suitable for any audience or occasion. “The Polka and Mazurka complement each other beautifully, yet also showcase contrasting dance rhythms and characteristic.” [ISB] “…a cross between Hans Fryba’s Suite in the Olden Style and Bottesini. They would make good audition pieces – technically demanding in an entertaining and enjoyable way.” [Bass News]
