Ditto. Although "Piece for Schlub and Orchestra" sounds appealing.

The U.S. Orchestra Premiere will be in Olympia, WA on October 5, 2014 with the Olympia Symphony, Huw Edwards conducting. I'll be soloing, and I can't wait to bring this piece back again under my fingers.

The composer and commissioner should be in attendance as well; they've been eagerly awaiting the U.S. orchestra premiere.

This concerto rocks... it's fun to play, damn challenging to play, and enjoyable for an audience. It requires cast-iron chops for the tessitura. But lord, it's fun.

If you're in the area, c'mon down :)

Just a reminder to tubists in the Pacific Northwest: this concerto is premiering Sunday, October 5 in Olympia, WA. It's the US orchestra premiere, and it'll be fun (that's the point of the piece). Substantial piece, and worth hearing, and tickets went on sale today.

Classic KING FM Seattle will run an interview with the composer and me before the concert - I'll post when I know the date/time it airs. Victor will be in attendance at the concert and the pre-concert lecture.
