Nocturne No. 1

Originally for violin, this beautiful Nocturne is ideal for the progressing young bassist.

19th-century German composer-pianist J.F. Burgmuller (1806-1874) lived most of his life in Paris and writes in a lyrical and romantic style, typical of the age. The edition remains in bass clef throughout and offers effective musical and technical challenges. This is beautiful and evocative music where the bassist can display more than simply technical prowess

Nocturne No.1 has been very popular with intermediate students who are not quite ready to play in thumb position yet, but have a good knowledge of the positions up to harmonic G (one ocatve above the open string).

Performance Level: 6:7
