Notes about tuba works:

Works for standard Brass Quintet are: Op. 10, 114 & 145b

Microtonal works that most likely will not work for tuba, but just in case, there on the list: 148, 150 and maybe 202, but Op. 202 can be done in an equal tempered version too.

There are a few large brass ensemble works: 90, 92 & 196 these were written for the brass players of the "Music in the Mountains" Summer festival, back when they did an annual brass concert.

The Electrum Brass Trio was a trio of horn, trombone and tuba work on the list from 160 to 193 were written for this group.

“This CD proves that what may have sounded weird sixty years ago now sounds normal and often beautiful.”

There are many lesser-known 20th century composers, who have great worth!

Let’s not forget the music of:
Wendell Otey
Alan Hovhaness
Henry Cowell
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Gunther Schuller.
