'Bass-Hymn' was written for the Bavarian Basscamp to provide a piece that includes players of all levels. Mini-bass players who just started can also play along with professional soloists and Bass 5 is optional. The aim is that no player is overwhelmed and also that no one is bored with the piece. 'Bass-Hymn' uses two themes that are repeated many times in different variations and the composer hopes that the audience will leave singing and whistling the 'Bass-Hymn'.

'Bass-Hymn' is dedicated to all Bassists and music lovers in the world.

Double bassist, educator and composer Claus Alexander Freudenstein was born in Bavaria (Germany) in 1972 and after working as a tax officer for eight years he discovered the double bass and the electric bass. He studied double bass at the „Hochschule für Musik und Theater“ and at the „Richard-Strauss-Conservatory" in Munich and had a career as a professional electric bass player in several Rock bands. After graduation he worked as a double bass teacher and also performed with several German and international orchestras. Claus Freudenstein is the inventor of the „Freudenstein-Minibass“ - a double bass that enables kids to play the instrument from the age of five.

He founded the international Doublebass Quartett „The Bassmonsters“ who have performed worldwide. Claus Freudenstein is an Director of the International Society of Bassists and runs his own festival 'The Bavarian-Bassdays' alongside which he has given masterclasses and recitals in Spain, England, Austria, Italy, Malta, Portugal, USA, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mexico.
