Program Notes

Robert Jager composed his Concerto for Bass Tuba and Concert Band in 1981 as a commission from the tuba player Daniel Perantoni, and the première performance took place the same year, with the University of Illinois Symphonic Band conducted by Harry Begian.

The composition consists of a single movement, but is cast in five distinct sections, each of which derives its material from the four-note motif first heard in the lower instruments during the introduction. The composer has described the style of the music as Neo-Romantic, following the wish of the original soloist for a piece which leaves the audience ‘on their feet applauding and not leaving’.
