Default Double Bass quartet version of Air for the G string

The subject says it all: I would very much like to have a
double bass quartet for Bach's Air on the G string.

Hello David and thank you for your post.

Are you asking a transcription of it for four double-basses? Please, let me know... it would be pretty unique!

Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Hi Fabrizio

Yes, a transcription for four double basses is what I want. I could use your violin /piano part (it is really nice) but I want to have my four basses in the section play this by themselves.

To respond to someone who suggested that it would be low, remember the double bass can play, depending on the specific bass, about 2 octaves above middle C (sounds one octave below noteated pitch) One of my basses has a long fingerboard, it will play that C, the other, only a B. It doesn't have to be low, but the tessatura can't be too high, it gets /hard/.

To the third inquirer about whether I live in Korea: No, I live in the USA, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

Seasons Greeting to Fabrizio, Virtual Sheet Music staff and all the posters

Ok, sorry. I just thought you might or maybe be from there. I lived in Korea for 2 years and Teague is a city there, not too far from where my family lived. Sorry.

Thanks!
