6 Advanced Duets for 2 Tubas
Six Advanced Duets for Two Tubas.
- Ragamuffin is my own musical tribute to the great American composer Scott Joplin.
- Chorale is designed to show the unique sound quality and emotional depth created by two tubas playing together expressively and lyrically.
- Duetto Diminuito is written mostly in 7/8 time and makes much use of diminished sevenths in an angular and rhythmically driving way.
- Perpetuum Mobile is a fast moving scherzo with very rapid music passing equally between both parts. Once the piece has begun there is no break in sound until the final bar.
- Caledonian Folksong is based on the traditional modal style of a Scottish and Celtic folksong.
- Circus Maximus is a circus march (and for a few bars a waltz) portraying all the excitement and ‘feats of daring do’ seen by the audience in an old fashioned Victorian travelling circus.
