This book offers a variety of pieces for the double-bass. Some were written for this book, while others are transcriptions of 16th century to 19th c. pieces.
These pieces are in chronological order (Renaissance and baroque, classical and romanticism, traditional music and French songs, new pieces, studies and orchestral excerpts).
All the duos are recorded with Daniel Marillier (double-bass), accompanied by Vérouchka Nikitine (piano) and Régis Prudhomme (double-bass).
Several articles and pictures about double-bass making, written by Patrick Charton, were also added.
