Schubert – Arpeggione Sonata (ed. T. Cobb)

Franz Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata is a firm favourite amongst string players, despite being written for a short-lived instrument that is today rarely seen outside of a museum. Indeed, Schubert’s sonata for the instrument is the only major piece in the arpeggione repertoire, and after the instrument faded to obscurity in the late 1820s this composition lay unpublished until 1871. In this new edition for double bass by Timothy Cobb, this sonata has been re-worked as a piece for double bass and piano, and comes complete with suggestions for fingerings and bowings, along with optional piano accompaniments in solo and orchestral tuning.
