Chamber music is a major area of neglect in the study of the double bass, and the instrument has also suffered from a scarcity of chamber music literature written by major composers. As bassists focus predominantly on solo and orchestral repertoire, the purpose of this study is to enrich the double bass literature and increase awareness of chamber music as a tool for bassists to develop as artists by providing a transcription of Johannes Brahms’s Trio in A minor, Op.114 for double bass, clarinet, and piano. The transcription adds to the literature for double bass from the Romantic era, giving players the chance to work on their technical and musical skills in a chamber music setting. In addition, performance of this transcription will enhance double bassists’ understanding of the style of one of the most important nineteenth-century composers.
