Price £7.50

Erkon Elegia by Teppo Hauta-aho is a beautiful and evocative 'serious' work offering effective and accessible challenges to the intermediate bassist. Using just over a two octave range and remaining primarily in bass clef, it demonstrates the wide range of colours and timbres available to the modern bassist.
Composed in 1994, Erkon Elegia can be played by unaccompanied double bass or ensemble and the edition includes both versions.

"Erkon Elegia is accessible to advanced beginning bassists with the ability to perform with confidence into the lower thumb positions." [ISB]

"Erkon Elegia is a versatile little piece that can be played as a solo, duo, trio or ensemble. In only 49 bars, and using elementary music, Hauta-aho manages to use many of his trademark compositional characteristics...it's friendly geography and varied colourscape should prove popular with beginning bassists." [Double Bassist]
