Nonetheless, the work presents multiple challenges to the intermediate and professional player alike, as the bel canto vocal style demands considerable facility in accurate shifting, and sophisticated and supple bowing. Two of the first challenges facing the performer in this work occur almost immediately in the piece—something that many students find quite intimidating. The first is in mm. And to further enhance the bel canto style, I ask my students to learn the shift with a closed and vibrated upper D, rather than a harmonic. The simple shifting exercise in Exercise 1 has proven valuable to build confidence in that shift.

List of compositions by Giovanni Bottesini
Giovanni Bottesini 22 December — 7 July , was an Italian Romantic composer, conductor, and a double bass virtuoso. Born in Crema, Lombardy , he was taught the rudiments of music by his father, an accomplished clarinetist and composer, at a young age and had played timpani in Crema with the Teatro Sociale before the age of eleven. He studied violin with Carlo Cogliati, and probably would have continued on this instrument except for a unique turn of events. His father sought a place for him in the Milan Conservatory , but due to the Bottesini family's lack of money, Bottesini needed a scholarship.
