Sebastien Beliah: Pieces of Eight
Pieces of Eight
Double bass and piano
Pieces of Eight is a collection of eight enjoyable and engaging pieces for the young bassist. A range of popular musical styles have been employed, such as ragtime and rock, to create a set of fun pieces which have a strong rhythmic element and should appeal to young bassists of all ages.
Each piece has a lively and supportive piano accompaniment, ideal for any school concert, and offer a range of musical and technical challenges which have been 'road-tested' many times with the composer's own students. The variety of musical styles and idioms should appeal to young bassists and there is scope to change or adapt bowings and dynamics to create a truly unique performance each time.(ISMN 9790570456130)
