The Double Bass
Published by Diogenes as Der Kontrabaß
Original Title: Der Kontrabaß
Normally the double-basses are assimilated, concealed in the orchestra. Scored both as a social comedy and a lament to the essential unfairness of life, ›The Double Bass‹ restores a grain of justice to a too long-ignored area of artistic endeavour, allowing one double-bass player at least to perform in this book.
»He has described the scowling world of the double-bass with the playful virtuosity of a solo violin.«
