    Tubas Latinas [EETTT w/optional percussion]

    TUBAS LATINAS is scored for 2 Euphonium and 3 Tuba parts along with 2 optional percussion parts (Perc. 1: 2 claves and 2 cowbells, the latter to be mounted on a stand and played with snare drum sticks)(Perc. 2: 2 maracas and tambourine). The composition is approximately 6 minutes in length and contrasts Spanish and Latin American musical elements. It consists of 4 sections in a slow-fast-slow-fast format. The first section opens with a slow introduction featuring Euph. 1. in a cantabile Spanish style melody. The second section, which begins at measure 18, consists of bullfight bravura type music which is occasionally interrupted by syncopated jazz rhythms. In section 3, which begins at measure 134, the opening melody of the introduction returns, thistime dressed in different garb. A solo Tba. 1. cadenza leads to section 4. This section contrasts with the previous 3 spanish sections since it is in a latin style. This final section, which begins at measure 147, is as long as the previous 3 sections combined. A secondary theme from section 2 (meas. 68-83) is developed in latin style during the second part of section 4 (meas. 175-186 and 216-224). It is also in this section that the optional percussion parts are introduced. All players should ensure that the latin style rhythms are played effortlessly, never hurried or labored.
