Product Details


Seldom does the tuba receive the proper attention it deserves as a melodic instrument. It is true that its value as the foundation of the sound of both bands and orchestras somewhat hinders its use melodically, but the instrument possesses a true beauty of tone that should be heard more often. The tuba is capable of exquisite emotional range and sensitivity. It is far more versatile than most would believe and can execute rhythmic passages with surprising agility. This concerto explores these capabilities, placing the instrument above, below, and inside the accompaniment, creating unique sonorities while giving the tuba player the melodies he or she has always wanted to play. Concerto for Tuba was composed for Ronald Bishop, long-time principal tuba of the Cleveland Orchestra. Band, orchestra, and piano accompaniments are all available from the publisher.
