    Does anyone know where I can buy a CD recording of Reinhold Gliere's composition: "Four Pieces for Double Bass and Piano" in orchestra tuning?

    My daughter (double bassist) needs to play this piece and is looking for a CD recording of it that has both the bass performance along with a piano accompaniment in orchestra tuning. We know there are a couple of you tube videos of folks playing it. But we are looking for a CD recording of the complete piece. Any suggestions? I appreciate your help. Thank you. John RMD7

    It will be unlikely to find a recording of these pieces done for an album that was recorded in orchestral tuning. At least, I don't know of any.

    These two videos are of a great performance by Božo Paradžik of the four pieces that were later released on CD:

    There are numerous recordings of these pieces. Simple Google search should turn up those available. On my web site there is an example of a live performances of the Tarantella: http://www.patrickneher.com/about.html --- at the bottom of the page.
    Best of luck!
