  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...
     
  5. 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?
