  • Cat. no. 13156


It is my subjective selection of ten well-known, beautiful and interesting works from the musical canon which today cannot be found on the obligatory programme of double bass competitions, let alone on the music school curriculum. We can only play them for pleasure! But is that not what teaching music is all about – to provide the pupil with pleasure from playing and hearing the most beautiful works in the history of music? And it matters not what instrument a pupil plays – he or she can also learn about the history of music ‘from the inside’, relishing its flavour by performing melodies they have heard at music school.
