Double Bass

For your audition, you should prepare two contrasting solo pieces or movements of one piece. The choice of solos is up to the applicant. Demonstrating tone, musicianship and technique are all important in the repertoire selection. Suggestions include, but are not limited to:

  • Marcello – Sonatas
  • Capuzzi  or Koussevitzky Concertos
  • Nanny – Etudes
  • Bach Cello Suites
  • Simandl – Etudes

Scales

Be prepared to perform 2 two-octave major scales of your choice. Any bowing combination is acceptable.

Sight-reading

You will be asked to sight-read a passage as part of your audition. You will be given a few moments to look it over and then we will ask you to perform it.

 

If you have any questions, contact Susanna Klein, coordinator of strings.
