F. Strauss Nocturno - Tuba & Piano from a recent recital

This weekend I participated in my orchestra's chamber music series, and performed Franz Strauss Nocturno Op. 7 with Channing Yu accompanying. It was a fantastic event, and I appreciated hearing my colleagues make some music. We all had a moment prior to performing to discuss our musical choices, and I focused on the lack of true romantic music featuring the solo tuba before the 20th century. The audience seemed delighted. Please enjoy.

geez...I wonder why the typical recital from the approved list of "tuba solos" features about seventeen-or-so attendees...??

yeah...When someone (on a rare occasion) asks me to play one-or-more "accompanied solo" pieces, I'll look towards the same body of literature towards which Ben looked. It's a wise choice, and Ben easily demonstrates the capabilities of creating the sonority (and intonation) to pull it off, whereas a large percentage of bombastic and range-sporting "bonafide tuba literature" seems to be designed to (if needed...??) cloak a lack of these.

This. Well done, Ben.

Is this a commercially-available arrangement?

For those not familiar, Franz Strauss was Richard's father. It does sound something like Richard.

Again- nice job.

Pretty sure it's on IMSLP for horn and piano. Obvs in Treble clef 'F'.
I have a bass clef version I've edited. If you send me an email I'll swing it your way. Malcolmpeach@gmail.com
