ABRSM Tuba from 20138 
The idea for a tuba concerto has been discussed many times between the soloist and composer, who wanted to be sure that the piece really was a concerto for tuba and that its material would suit the instrument in the role of a soloist without resorting to caricature. To this end the solo part covers almost 3.5 octaves and uses the instrument's technical and lyrical qualities to the full.

The concerto is in two joined movements, which can both be programmed individually. The first movement starts slowly with a noble tune and gathers momentum until a cadenza heralds the return of the opening material. The second is in the form of a scherzo, which starts indetermined mood and gradually lightens in character until, again, the opening material closes the work robustly.

Solo parts included: Solo Tuba, Solo Eb Bass
