 Ashley Frampton Biography

After a busy and varied freelance career including three wonderful years with the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, Ashley has been Assistant Principal Double Bass in the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for over twenty years. His first bass quartet came after a request from the University of Liverpool for an ensemble piece, Mary Poppins' Basses ensued and he has not looked back since.

Originally for cello and piano the Idyll dates from 1865.

 

Charming three minute salon piece for Double Bass and Piano with a nice simple piano part.

It has a romantic song structure which makes full use of the stringed instruments warm sound and yearning intensity.

 

I have found this piece very useful with my own pupils, around the ABRSM grade 7 - 8 standard, a very pleasant little filler piece.
