One of the standard works in the double bass repertoire for much of the 20th-century. Originally for violin, this new edition by Tony Osborne and David Heyes includes an accompaniment which is clear, fresh, concise and idiomatic. Full of energy and spirit, this glorious Baroque sonata, probably by Eccles and Valentini, has much to commend it to the professional and amateur bassist alike. Audience friendly and very accessible.
