    Default Game (nominations): Praise the double bass!

    Welcome to the nomination phase of the Praise the double bass! game. I'm looking for compositions in which the double bass plays a major role, such as double bass concertos, works for double bass solo, or sonatas for double bass and piano (no transcription unless done or sanctioned by the composer). I will make the final decision in borderline cases. There will be a limit of maximum five works per composer - looking for max 80 works in total.

    You can nominate up to three works per your calendar day, but they have to be by different composers. Please use the lay-out for nominations as in my example below.

    My picks for the day:

    Davies, PM - Double bass concerto (Strathclyde Concerto No.7)
    Hindemith - Sonata for double bass and piano
    Tubin - Double bass concerto
