I'm excited to present a selection of the double bass repertoire I've played, including rarely heard works and ones that have been written especially for me. You can sort the works by your own interests. Enjoy!
Here you can find examples of publications I have edited in recent years in collaboration with institutions, musicians and private clients. Those include concert and event programs, program notes, CD booklets and books of various kinds. Perhaps the next publication is yours?
