The Gentle Giant by Bob Phillips is a beautiful lyric solo for double bass and piano evoking the image of the giant of the orchestra. The bass plays up through 4th position mainly on the D and G string for maximum projection. Carefully done fingerings with position marks make it easy to learn. A string orchestra accompaniment for the piece was published by Alfred in 2008 (item 00-29715).
