Helsted Decet

Have just come out of a session of mixed decets (string quartet + bass, + wind quintet). The main feature was the Helsted decet – a new piece to me, that definitely requires some attention! There are all sorts of interesting corners and fiddly bits, and even the double bass gets a look-in. I need to get hold of a copy of the bass part and go through it in detail.

We finished off the session with the Dvorak Bagatelles, arranged by Geoffrey Emerson. A fun arrangement, if a little light on the bass side.
