World Premiere: Concerto for Tuba and Wind Orchestra Feb 22

Postby pierso20 » Thu Jan 02, 2020 5:14 pm

Hello everyone,

I have been much more of a lurker than a poster over the last half a decade however I thought this post would be prudent.

February 22nd, 7:30pm the "West Point Band" (cond. Tod Addison) and tubist Keith Kile will premiere my concerto for tuba and wind orchestra. Originally written in 2012(2013) I have since revised some things and 8 years later it will finally receive its premiere (composing: it can be quite a long game sometimes).

If you follow the West Point Band on facebook or through social media, you will be able to catch a livestream of the entire concert, including the 18' piece. James Green will also be performing the premiere of the version with electronic accompaniment at several regional tuba/euphonium conferences - so hopefully you'll have some chances to hear it. I'll also send a reminder as we get closer.

If you want to hear the electronic rendering, you can visit my link https://www.brookepierson.com/concerto-for-tuba-and-wind-orchestra.html

After the premiere in February, the piece is ready for more performances both with live ensemble and electronic accompaniment. Cheers!

It sounds interesting. 8)

How much trouble would it be to boost the solo line - in the electronic mix - and then reload it on to the webpage?

The solo part isn't particularly audible/discernible.

It probably wouldn't take much time but considering the real-deal performance will be happening in a month, I'm not inclined to take the time. :wink:

Joe, you should come to the Kennesaw or Lexington conference and hear it live, I may make a blurb saying the only reason I was able to attempt it is playing on one of your mouthpieces (which is not an over exaggeration...) :D

It has been a great pleasure working with Brooke on this piece, one of the best composers I have worked with. I commissioned a tuba quartet a decade ago from him and I remember when he sent samples of this Concerto, I figured it would be a hit. The piece is not easy by any stretch, but it has been fun and sounds cool. Thanks for the wonderful new addition to the repertoire!
