This transcription retains the "violin concerto" sound of the original movement while using the warm lower register of the bass. It is an excellent pedagogical piece since the bassist is obliged to play an expressive legato while not departing from the tempo provided by the piano's ostinato. The piano part is voiced to minimize problems of balance. Piano parts in both orchestra and solo tuning included.
