Spanish violin virtuoso and composer Pablo de Sarasate was born in Pamplona on 10 March 1844. He performed throughout the world as a soloist and many of his compositions are celebrated show-pieces designed to demonstrate his flawless technique.

Zigeunerweisen (Gipsy Songs) Op.20 (composed in 1878) is a virtuosic showpiece for the violin and even more so for the double bass. Petru Iuga's transcription for double bass and piano is a tour de force and demonstrates the solo possibilities of the double bass in the 21st century.

The music of J.S. Bach belongs in the repertoire of every instrument.

 

  The idea to transpose the Cello Suite No.1 into D major was inspired by my son, Peer Anton Iuga and, at the age of seven, was always happiest when playing the Prelude from Suite No.1 on the cello. I realised how comfortable he was playing mainly in one or two positions and I chose double bass fingerings that I can play more in this direction, trying to avoid as many shifts as possible. The second fingering possibilities are for players who are not comfortable playing with the thumb in the lower positions.
