Bottesini accompaniments for orchestral tuning

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by fergus currie, Apr 1, 2009.

  1. What I'm looking for initially is a piano accompaniment for 'Sonambula' in concert pitch. I only have one bass and I don't want to change strings every time I do a solo gig. I have all the Yorke edition Bottesini in orchestral tuning but there are a few gaps (such as the Sonnambula).
    Can anyone direct me to a good printed edition of this?

    Secondly I was wondering if anyone has made a collection of this material and, if not, perhaps we could assemble a list of links and downloadable stuff here. That's if the moderators agree of course.

    Much obliged,

    http://www.douglasmappmusic.com/ is one place to look. I don't think he has transcribed it yet but he might on request. It takes quite a lot of work to do this work so clearly you have to pay something. Another option is to find a pianist who can transpose. Many can do this if the accompaniment is easy enough and/or they have enough time to work on it.

  3. Thank you very much Neil, This is exactly what I was looking for and much more too!

    I had to stop or I would spend all my pocket money there! Mapp has a great list!
