    Hey all of you! I was just wondering if anyone in here has played Vagn Holmboe's sonata for double-bass solo?

    I borrowed a copy from my teacher, but haven't had much time to look at it. It seems like a cool piece of music though. I guess it's not that well-known.. I probably wouldn't have come across it if I wasn't Danish myself. Maybe you guys should check it out, if you're looking for some solo rep. :)

  3. Hi!

    It's a fun piece to play, lots of character ;) interesting music, and not too difficult to play. I know that very many students here in Norway plays it.
