Quick Overview

For years, instrumentalists have dipped into the operatic repertoire for special showcase solos and encores. Here is a book for bass clef instruments that presents a collection of 16 best-known arias arranged for instrumental performance. These arias are presented in their original keys and can be played by the soloists with traditional piano or orchestral accompaniment. The music has been transcribed and edited for clarity and musical phrasing for the instrumentalist rather than for the vocalist. These are great showstoppers for any recital!
