Review in "The Strad"

Review of Michael Wolf's double bass method book "Principles of Double Bass Technique" appeared in the July 2008 issue of "The Strad" magazine

PRINCIPLES OF DOUBLE BASS TECHNIQUE
Michael Barry Wolf

241 PP ISBN 9783795787325 Schott Û24.95 (text in English and German)

"In this detailed work, Michael Barry Wolf has created a new way of understanding double bass technique. Starting with basic biomechanical principles, he creates an easily understandable and comprehensive method of

left- and right-hand techniques, going on to explore the musical uses of these techniques, and closing the book with a discussion of the challenges of practice and performance... ...This book will not stay on the shelf in the bassist's library. I have already found myself quoting from it in lessons, assigning exercises from it to students, and experimenting with its concepts as I play. Any serious student of the bass should not be without it."

Basses at the Crescendo2009 Music Festival

Das Crescendo beginnt bei den Bässen Montag, 8. Juni 2009, 19.30 Uhr u. a. Werke von Tony Osborne und Michael Wolf ( Mitwerkende: Wieland Bachmann, Okhee Lee, Lucasz Klusek, Yong Il Seo, Igor Prokopets, Michael Wolf( ( Selten sind Kontrabassisten in großer Zahl auf der Bühne im Konzert zu hören, ohne dass die ablenkende Begleitung eines Symphonieorchesters ebenfalls ertönt. Nun betritt Prof. Michael Wolf mit den Studenten seiner Kontrabassklasse, die zum Teil bereits Mitglieder bedeutender professioneller Orchester und Preisträger renommierter Wettbewerbe sind, die Bühne en masse, um diese Kulturlücke zu schließen. Die kräftig und überraschend virtuosen Klänge eines Kontrabass-Ensembles, die von brummenden 16-Fuß-Orgeltönen bis in schwindelnde Höhen hinaufklettern, werden mit lebendigen und außergewöhnlichen Werken präsentiert... vom Lyrischen bis zum Rock. Joseph-Joachim-Konzertsaal Eintritt: 6 Euro / erm. 4 Euro
