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, earning a graduate diploma in double bass performance.
At 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.
Hinde remained in contact with Leon Bosch during his time in college; after graduating, he began working with him to produce transcriptions and arrangements of solo repertoire for the double bass.
He has recently been working more from copies of composers’ manuscripts and created an edition in 2016 of Franz Keyper’s second Concerto for Double Bass for I Musicanti Publishing, the first of the seven to be published. He has also arranged a number of concertos for solo instrument and string quintet.
