Bachianas Brasilieras, Cello 8 part for Double Bass

I am puh-syched to be playing cello 8 for the Bachianas Brasilieras No.1 by Heitor Villa-Lobos, on double bass no less. They were out one cello player, and I have always wanted to step in on that piece. πŸ˜€ We are just doing the first movement, but that’s fine with me.

To make it more fun, I arranged a double bass part. Here is the download for the bass part in PDF format. I’ll add the crecendos and decrecendos at a later date. We’ll call that v1.01 or something. But in the meantime, it is what it is.

  1. I noticed a couple of hideous typos in the published part after our performace of this piece last week. I’ll publish a new one as soon as I can, but basically some of the multi-rests have wrong counts…

  2. amazing. I have just performed Lobos’ in my cello choir serveral times along with a professional soprano. It was purely wonderful! Interesting piece it is, and also interesting how it truly requires a mental connection between every performer to keep things together.
