Chamber Music With Bass

Bass players often bemoan the fact they cannot find much in the way of chamber music which includes the bass. But now that has changed. We offer a wide selection of works with bass. But in addition, we have teamed up with the well-known bass soloist, teacher and arranger, Dr. Anthony Scelba, in an effort to make even more works available to bass players. Dr. Scelba has made arrangements of several well-known chamber works, originally for two cellos, into stellar arrangements for cello and bass. Many of these arrangements, such as the Schubert String Quintet D.956, have been recorded to acclaim. Critics and players have hailed his arrangements as not only preserving the character of the originals but even adding a new dimension to these treasured works. We are very proud to present Dr. Scelba's outstanding arrangements and are pleased that we will be able to introduce additional arrangements as they become available.
