Program Notes

Broughton originally wrote his Tuba Concerto and a sonata for tuba and 24 orchestral winds. He later went on to rewrite the composition for tuba and piano, and in 2003 for tuba and full orchestra. His Tuba Concerto was written for the prolific Hollywood studio tuba player, Tommy Johnson.
