Boston Symphony Assistant Principal Bass Lawrence Wolfe has discovered what may be the original, handwritten edition of Bille Book One. This is a tremendous find for all bassists if it’s the original, but he’s asking the help of the bass community (that’s all of you reading this!) to hep determine its authenticity. He intends to donate it to the International Society of Bassists if it is indeed the original.
