Price £7.00

Rhapsody is a magnificent piece for unaccompanied double bass and was inspired by the 1985 Munich Double Bass Competition. Teppo Hauta-aho commented 'I was following the Munich Competition in 1985 because 'Kadenza' was the obligatory piece. I wanted to write a melodious piece to show the audience that you can play long melodies and express many feelings through the double bass.'

There are musical and technical challenges in equal measure and much to explore and enjoy. A great performance piece for both performer and audience alike.
