Three short enjoyable and accessible pieces by Hugo Schlemuller. Originally for cello and composed in the late 19th or early 20th-century, they transcribe well for the young bassist. Forward, March! is a lively, rhythmic and extended march using half, first and second positions; Our Soldiers (March) has a strong drive and momentum, going no higher than 3rd position and Scherzo is fast and fun. Ideal as concert repertoire, there lively pieces are ideal for the young bassist working up to 3rd position, offering effective musical and technical challenges in the lower register of the double bass. Strongly supportive piano accompaniments.
