Berlin Philharmonic bassist Edicson Ruiz advocates Viennese tuning and a period bow to bring out the best in this sonorous Classical work. I have a confession: when I was 13 years old and I heard this piece for the first time, played by some of the advanced students in my class in Venezuela, I thought it was horrible. It sounded low, heavy, difficult and not charming at all! In my opinion, it is probably the most famous and worst played audition piece for double bass, because it has been so largely modified to make it playable with the instruments that we use today.

Duncan McTier works with the student, mainly, the tuning, note by note, also related to dynamics. At the same time, they work other aspects such as searching positions and a good quality sound. McTier also makes a comparison between some passages and some daily exercises from his own book of exercises. The professor recommends tuning with the piano - passage by passage - and checking this tuning.

If there is something wrong, the student must stop to correct it. Afterwards, prof. McTier explains how to play technically large intervals with big shifts, more accurate fingerings and how to practise them. He also recommends the student to make sure and be convinced of the good sound he produces and then, he will be able to convince the audience.
