Thread Name: Bought a double bass today
Subject: RE: Bought a double bass today
Which guy? Zimmerman? He's written books on pedagogery and transcriptions but don't know if he composed. Reinshagen, to my knowledge, did not write any pieces and neither did Manoly (they could have but I'm not aware of any). Simandl wrote some pedagogery books--he's the foundation of virtually every bassist today. I hear that Hrabe was a composer but I can't say I've heard anything he's written. Hause wrote some pedagogery books and I've ordered a 2-volume set from Germany. Don't know if he composed. Gladstone didn't write anything or my instructor would have told me. Gladstone was an ensemble player. He could do incredible stuff as a solo player but never recorded that way because he was an ensemble player and he said so.
