Program Notes

So many of the traditional works featuring the tuba emphasize its humorous and very low capabilities. In recent decades, performers and their corresponding literature have featured the lyrical, mid-range warmth of the instrument. Concerto for Tuba certainly draws upon this latter evolution, but is also designed to exhibit the many dramatic and virtuosic abilities of the great contemporary tuba soloists by placing the soloist in three very distinct musical settings, one in each movement. The movements are linked by common thematic material in order to create an organic whole.

Concerto for Tuba was commissioned by twenty-seven ensembles across the country. It was given its premiere by tubist Aaron Tindall and the Ithaca College Wind Ensemble, who also recorded the work. It was given its European premiere by Dr. Tindall in Linz, Austria.
