Basses in the Orchestras:
What it is is....the Prague School (1820 onwards -- Wenzel Hause, Emanuel Storch, Josef Hrabe, Franz Simandl, et al.) did point the way for "Zukunftsmusik" and also did lend some really "Italian Style" to the symphonies of Brahms and Mendelssohn, the orchestral works of Arnold Schoenberg and Anton von Webern notwithstanding. As for the rest, only a very occasional observance from such Eastern European Masters, such as Serge Prokofiev in the Sinfonie Concertante (1951) to allow the return of a "tuned" bass, as though such a thing actually had existed!
