    I just ordered the Eccles Bass Sonata in G minor online. The site gave know preview. Does anyone know if the 1st movement is all in Treble Clef?

    actually no, i've have lots of pieces that are in or go into treble clef, even simple ones like the Keyper go into Treble. the eccles could easily go into treble

    does it go into Tenor or Treble, does anyone know?

    If you ordered it from Liben, they may have updated it to read in treble cleff. They like to do that kind of thing, it seems.

    I have the Yellow covered version from International Music by (Zimmerman). I have it for about 30 years or so. The first movement is ALL in Tenor Clef. Tenor is a perfect 5th above where it would be for Bass. The 2nd and 3rd movement is in both Tenor and Bass clef but mainly Tenor. Remember, this is a Cello Sonata so Tenor Clef is the Second language of a Cellist.

    Good luck, it's my favorite 'sweet' piece for Bass.

    By the way, back when I got mine it was marked $1.75 but after discount I only paid $1.58 (plus tax I guess) as they crossed out the $1.75 pencil marking on the cover. The Bass part had 'blue inked stamp' $1.75 on it ... True, no joke!
     
  7. The edition I have is all in tenor clef; I don't think the piece itself goes high enough to be going into treble clef...
