The Heritage Series series

The history of the double bass features many player-composers who created a wealth of music for bassists of all abilities. Recital Music publish a wide and eclectic range of music by these important figures from the history of the instrument, particularly from the 19th and early 20th-centuries, and more works are in preparation. Some names are well known today, others almost forgotten, but each made a valuable contribution to the repertoire of the double bass and helped create a unqiue repertoire which deserves to be performed.

Jan [Johann] Geissel was a Czech double bassist, teacher and composer, born in Pardubice in 1859, who lived most of his life in Strasbourg and died there in 1919. He wrote a number of works for double bass and his Concerto in A major Op.32 and Konzertstück Op.24 are still in print today, helping to keep his name alive a hundred years after his death. Several of his works have been recorded and his music successfully combines musical and technical challenges in equal measure, written in an accessible musical style and part of the rich heritage of music from the mid to late 19th-century.
