This about 7 minutes durable double bass quartet is the only work of the Frankfurt composer which devotes itself to the solo double bass. Composed in 1983, it became performed for the first time in 1984 by students of the college for music in Frankfurt a. M. (Germany). Sure it is one of the most difficult pieces of the double bass literature generally. It demands of all 4 musicians the biggest virtuosity. The music itself sticks to a freely treated tonality. The composer even in addition: " „ Of course I try to compose an autonomously music, however, I write the word with small letters". (In: Kurt Hessenberg - contributions to life and work) Who dares?

Heartbreakingly beautiful songs. In these songs there aren´t asked great virtuosi with fast fingers but the more expressive singers on their instruments. Most of the 5 pieces aren't very demandingly in technical sence bur even more in musical sence.

This piece was written for the 50´s anniversery of Prof. Günter Klaus. The song "Happy Birthday to you" is introduced by a quotation from the double-bass concert of Dittersdorf. Then it sounds walz-like and in major and minor key and is interrupted by the song "Hoch soll er leben"  untill it ends in a festive chant character. The piece lasts only three minutes and can be played by professional double bass players without greater preparation. So it is the opportunity to present to a colleague a musical bouquet of flowers once a year. It is also available in arrangements for 2, 5, 6 and 8 double-basses.

A not quite seriously meant collage of two famous melodies of W. A. Mozart and Joseph Haydn. The first double bass player has technically the  most difficult part. But he has also an easy job in accompanying the others, too So everybody may play the leading role for some time without getting  technically too difficult for the basses 3 and 4. Duration: approx. 6 minutes.

This, finally, again available(obtainable) work is a highlight in musicallity, but also in virtuosity. Findeisen is here unusual kontrapunktal polyphonic without denying his romantic roots. The first mouvement (Adagio) is a serious, almost quite baroque seeming meditation. The following menuet is cheerful and is followed by an again serious and strictly polyphonic held mouvement (andante moderato) in which the first bass must master extremely high positions. The last mouvement (humoreske) however is witty and elegant again.

This is certainly one of the most famous tangos by Piazzolla, here in an arrangement for 4 double basses of the Argentinean bassist Andrés Martin, who edited this piece as a duo for double bass and piano, bass and harp and double bass and guitar. The latter version can be admired in an impressive video on YouTube on the Internet. The note sheets of these  versions are all available  here at the PRObass music publisher.
