Abstract:
This document investigates the stylistic elements and alternative performance approaches to Frantisek Hertl's Concerto for Double Bass (1957). Traditional methods of double bass technique are compared with more contemporary methods. A historical investigation identifies and clarifies traditional fingering and positioning approaches. Special attention is given to those systems that utilize the double bass' harmonic nodes as general reference points. Revealing how the application of these systems affects the phrasing and lyricism of Hertl's Concerto for Double Bass gives insight into approaches that serve more for stylistic expression than for ease of playing. Furthermore, it will be shown how the application of alternative fingering and positioning will affect bow usage. The application of bowings that are alternatives to those that appear in the published edition are also discussed. These alternative bowings are meant to compliment the romantically flavored phrase structure. Included in the Appendix is an edited version of the concerto that incorporates the philosophies discussed.
