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

Post by Ben »

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.

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" target="_blank
