Notes & Reviews:

Although the tuba enjoyed some success in Berliozs Symphonie fantastique and the operas of Wagner, it did not emerge as a solo instrument until the 20th century. Vaughan Williams Tuba Concerto, a work of originality and freshness that belies the 82-year-old composers advanced years, is as near a classic as it can be in a limited field. Edward Gregson, one of Britains most successful composers, has built a reputation writing for brass and wind bands, with a growing catalog of orchestral music.
