Carl Hinde started playing the double bass quite late but had the good fortune to be introduced to Leon Bosch who agreed to teach him. He went to Birmingham Conservatoire to continue his studies with John Tattersdill and Tom Millar where he earned a graduate diploma in double bass performance.
Whilst in Birmingham, he was mentored by professor Stephen Daw, who encouraged his interest in historically informed performance, and musicology. Specifically the study of double bass music in the classical period.
During his time in college he had stayed in contact with Leon Bosch; when he left he began working with Leon to produce transcriptions and arrangements of the solo repertoire for the Double – Bass.
Recently, he has been working more from copies of composer’s manuscripts as they have become available to himself or Leon. He created an edition of Franz Keÿper’s Second Double-Bass Concerto for I Musicanti in 2016, which was the first of the seven to be published. He has also arranged a number of concertos for solo instrument and string quintet.
