Double Bass Extra List
Auditions will be held at the beginning of March.
Applicants invited to audition will need to prepare a solo piece of your own choice plus orchestra excerpts – these are listed below and will be sent out along with an audition invitation.
N.B. For all work, our extra players are booked as London-based, so we do not pay extra travel/accommodation expenses if you are travelling from outside London.
Beethoven: Symphony No.5, Mvt III – Beginning to bar 218
Brahms: Symphony No.2, Mvt I – Letter E to Letter F
Mozart: Symphony No.40, Mvt I – bar 114-138 & bar 191-225
Strauss: Ein Heldenleben – Fig. 9-11
Verdi: Otello, Act 4 – Bass soli
In these excerpts you are welcome to use your own fingering and bowings, and there is no need to follow the pencilled notes.
