Misc. Comments

  • The Schott edition parts appear to be out of print.
  • The tuning is the Viennese fourth/third tuning, but in B major, one semitone higher than the usual D major:

\relative c {
\key c \major 

\clef bass
\omit Score.BarLine
\omit Score.TimeSignature
bes1 es g bes
}
Hence, the solo double bass is transposed, is written in D major and sounds a semitone higher than usual.
