Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile was originally the slow movement of his String Quartet No. 1, but was arranged by the composer for cello and strings in 1888. Since then, it has become a popular solo piece in its own right, and has been transcribed for a number of instruments. This version for double bass and piano by Petru Iug
a retains the beautiful tranquil quality of the original and is a lovely piece to add to a recital, without being too virtuosic.
