In spring 2002 the double bass will make its première appearance in the Henle urtext catalogue as a solo instrument. The Hoffmeister Double Bass Concerto will be joined by the "Elephant," Camille Saint-Saëns's enchanting miniature from the Carnival of the Animals. This "hit," one of the few double bass compositions attractive to learners and seasoned musicians alike, now appears in a Henle urtext edition for double bass in solo and orchestral tuning, with piano parts in F major and E flat major.
