The Transcriptions Series series

Recital Music publish a wealth of original works for double bass alongside a popular, accessible and growing range of transcriptions for bassists of all ages and abilities. Most transcriptions published by Recital Music are by David Heyes, who has a successful and proven track record when arranging for double bass.


Deux Melodies Hebraique by Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) were written in 1914 at Saint-Jean-de-Luz. The first song Kaddish, here arranged for double bass and piano by David Heyes, uses an Aramaic text from the Jewish prayer book. Both songs were first performed in June 1914 by Alvina Alvi (who commissioned them) with Ravel at the piano, and the composer orchestrated the songs in 1919-1920.

This edition includes piano accompaniments for both solo and orchestral tunings.
