"A three movement suite for unaccompanied double bass - ala Bach - and should be standard repertoire for every college student as it is filled with great rhythm, melodic and technical interest." (Alex Korda, Bass News, England)
“As with all of his pieces featuring the bass, Egilsson writes masterfully and virtuosically, exploiting an almost four octive range. While each movement has a distinct spirit, each also features several tempo and character changes, giving the composition an overall feel of a Baroque fantasy.” (Bass World)
