Beethoven Horn Sonata Op. 17
Transcribed for Double Bass and Edited by Gary Karr
Piano score plus bass parts in solo and orchestra tuning
Piano score plus bass parts in solo and orchestra tuning. At age 30 and living in Vienna, Beethovenís hearing was already beginning to decline. His Horn Sonata Op. 17 must have been particularly satisfying for him to perform for this reason. Valves would not be invented until 14 years later, so this Sonata was such a challenge that few horn players of the day could perform it, so Beethoven published another arrangement for cello.
