    Does anybody know where I can find An Etude or a Dbl Bass solo that uses a 12 tone serila matirix? I need it for an Music Theory assingment. Anything would help me out.

    Also I'm new to the boards so: Hi everybody!

    yo- welcome and fill out your profile! :)
    do you mean "12 tone serial matrix"? I can't think of a specific piece written as such for bass, but I have no dooubt you could find a Schoenberg or Stravinsky piece played on DB that follows 12 tone serialism if you looked long enough.

    Thanks, sorry I was in a hurry so I didn't spell everything right. I'm already looking into Schoenberg, I just wanted to know if anyone had anything specfically for Dbl Bass just off the top of thier head.

    I'll get on my profile soon, sorry

    Hans Werner Henze's Bass Concerto (Schott) is a classic 12 tone composition. The opening bass statement even gives you the row that is used (without fail) throughout the entire first movement.
