We have uncovered a true delight for double bass players: a collection of twelve stylized waltzes by Beethoven's contemporary Domenico Dragonetti. The ÒPaganini of the double bassÓ grew up in Venice, but moved to London as an adult. It is there that he probably wrote the twelve waltzes. They are quite likely the earliest surviving works for double bass solo. These charming pieces have until now not been published in their entirety. Despite their virtuosic impression, the technical hurdles can be comfortably mastered; the pieces are therefore not only suited for the concert hall but are also perfect encores. This quality Urtext edition is thus able to fill a true gap in the repertoire.
