Bottesini's Elegia and Reverie are at the very heart of the solo double bass repertoire and are ideal for bassists who have progressed through the exam grades and are looking for music which includes more of the solo register of the instrument.

These editions have transposed each into lower keys to make them more accessible for less advanced bassists. Elegia has been transposed down a perfect 4th and there are various bowing suggestions and one passage which can also be played an octave higher than written. Reverie has been transposed down a perfect 5th and makes effective use of the lower register with the occasional foray into thumb position.
