Max Dauthage was a bassist with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and also taught at the Vienna Conservatoire. Aimed at the good intermediate bassist, available in orchestral tuning only, they offer effective musical and technical challenges. Ideal for Grade 8+, they are primarily in the orchestral register also venturing into low thumb position. Composed in a lyrical and late romantic style, they offer interesting, evocative and inventive repertoire for the adventurous bassist. Effective and supportive piano accompaniments.
