Beethoven Sonatina

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by radioodidty, Jan 3, 2007.


  1. Does anyone know the original instrumentation for the Beethoven Sonatina found on p. 12 of the solos for the double bass player by oscar zimmerman?

    Good question. I think I've asked this one here before; also on 2xbasslist, I believe. A resounding silence in response. I've done a little reference snooping and have never really found any other reference to it...

    I've seen it as a mandolin sonata...
     
  4. Which one, the one in C major or C minor?

    I've always been told it's originally a Mandolin Sonata as well. I've also heard it performed that way. That's my guess.
     
  7. Damn, I thought you were talking about this piece I just got. It's also a Beethoven sonatina but it's in G Minor.
     
  8. The piece we are talking about is G Minor, anacruces on D?
