Notes & Reviews:
What do you think happens when wind instruments get together to enjoy themselves in agreeable company? And then, when the host is the tuba player Rubén Durá de Lamo, winner of the 2013 German Music Competition We don't experience it - we enjoy it on his new GENUIN CD: this exceptional tuba player goes on the stage of life with his guests, singing, dancing, arguing, declaiming and philosophising. Witty, virtuoso, dramatic and pensive works of the 20th century are on the menu: from Tomasi to Danielsson, from Russell to Penn. One notices that Rubén Durá de Lamo and his friends get along ideally. Not only good, but the finest company!
American Record Guide, September/October 2015
I'm a little surprised each time one of these Genuin albums comes along. The players are young, their names unknown to me. His tone - big down low, concentrated in the middle and high - seems ideal to me. There is an ease to his playing, clarity of articulation, and security at all times. I like this program, which has tuba in a variety of chamber settings. It's tuba and brass ensemble in Christer Danielsson's Capriccio da Camera (1976) and Morten Gaathaug's Sonata Concertante (1992).
