Notes & Reviews:

"...[Eugene Pokorny has served] as principal tubist of the Chicago Symphony since 1988... Pokorny embodies the ideal tuba sound and style: big, full, and powerful, yet lyrical and quite delicate when appropriate. He has not succumbed to the temptation of playing the small F tuba that is favored by many solo tubists. Instead, he prefers his large and trusty CC York instrument... This recording is one of the best ever by a tubist..." -Kilpatrick, ARG
