The Viennese Tuning Collection is created with the intention to provide a completely revised and corrected edition for the modern Viennese Bass player as well as the modern Bass player who wants to play it in solo-tuning. Both parts are provided and just a few details are changed for the modern solo-tuning, in order to be playable. The original Viennese Bass part would also fit for modern orchestra-tuning. The edition preserves the original music with the minimal interference from the editor, that due to the circumstances in which the originals are, realized small corrections in articulations, dynamics and wrong notes.
The Franz Anton Hoffmeister´s quartets are presented for the first time in an edition with the original scores for Vienese Bass and string trio. This Edition includes parts for the strings, a single part for Viennese Tuning, another single part for Solo Bass Tuning as well as a complete score.
