BERTRAM TURETZKY CONTEMPORARY CONTRABASS PDF

A virtuoso player whose background also includes a heavy dose of swing jazz, Turetzky systematically went about getting a large body of works commissioned for himself to play, thereby creating the contrabass repertoire as it exists today. More than compositions have been written for, performed by, and recorded by Turetzky , and there are very few performing artists who could make such a claim. He has spent a great deal of his time as an academic, despite this large amount of performance activity. He has distinguished himself as a clinician and pedagogue for more than 30 years, giving numerous master classes, seminars, and workshops nationally and internationally. He has conducted a great deal of acclaimed research in the fields of jazz history and the chamber music of the s, and is the author of many reviews, articles, and the book The Contemporary Contrabass, which is what one would find in the drawer opposite all motel room beds if bassists ran the world. Not surprisingly, he is also a published composer, editor, transcriber, and arranger of music for the contrabass.
