Tuba solo/feature with Brass Quintet?

Postby WillDellinger » Wed Mar 06, 2019 8:31 pm

Does anyone know of any good tuba solos with brass Quintet. We are putting together a show that features each instrument on a tune.

Or even a good idea that doesn't exist, but could be farmed out for arrangement.

The Canadian Brass's "Tuba Tiger Rag" may be a bit of a cliche, but for good reason!

There is a BQ arrangement of music from Star Wars by Scott Sutherland that includes Jabba the Hut.

Is it a show for little kids, high school kids, or adults?

Whatever crowd shows up to a USAF Brass Quintet concert in the midwest...

The concept is to start working in elements of Blast! - so HOPEFULLY a young adult/adult crowd...but probably an adult/not-so-young adult crowd.

I believe there's a brass quintet accompaniment for the RVW... second mvt...??

(If this is explored, I might experiment with cup mutes - part of the time - with the accompanying instruments.)

There is an arrangement by Stephen Roberts of Teddy Bear’s Picnic that is a tuba solo in quintet. It is a great arrangement but is quite though and best played on an Eb or F.

James Stephenson's concerto for tuba is a fun work:
