    hi all,
    this is my first post here.
    i have been playing the DB for about 3 years and next year i must perform on senior recital to graduate from school. can anyone recommend any intermediate pieces that would be suitable?


    dont laugh, but the type of stuff i am playing is the elephant, die meistersinger, and gavotte by bach, and minuet in G by bach...

  2. Doug,

    You didn't say if you are in High School or College. There are others here more in the know here than I am, such as KPO the new pro. How about Dragonetti's Concerto in A major? Just a thought.

    How about Sonata No. 3 in A Minor by Vivaldi?

    Marcello sonata in G

    Capuzzi Concerto

    Sicilliene from concerto grosso by vivaldi

    not incredibly challenging, but nice pieces of music, but i'm sure you've figured it out by now.

    It's been over a year tell us how it all came out. What did you play and how did you do?

    well you sound kind of paniced so play something like, the capuzzi, but that could be too hard, considereding your playing the elephant, so talk it over with you teacher, thats the best option

    Beethoven has a nice Sonatina that I played in Middle School as my Interlochen Audition. I still play it once in a while, just because it sounds cool. It's in that pink book I think, Solos for the Double Bass player?
