Originally for oboe, these two early Fantasy Pieces by Carl Nielsen (1865-1931), Denmark's most famous composer, transcribe well for double bass. They would be ideal for players of about Grade 8 level offering effective musical and technical challenges in the orchestral register, but also venturing into thumb position.

Romance is lyrical and evocative, contrasting a more lively and playful Humoresque. The piano accompaniments are supportive and independent, full of romantic bravura and flourish, and the pieces can be successfully performed singly or together as a suite.

The pieces are enjoyable and accessible making a useful addition to the popular transcription repertoire. Ideal for any concert or audience to demonstrate the qualities of the solo double bass.
