Tuba-Euphonium Octets

  • Plog, Anthony

    Profiles (3) [4E+4T]

    21st Century (2006). For 4 euphoniums and 4 tubas, in two equal antiphonal choirs. "When Winston Morris asked me to write a piece to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Tennesse Tech Tuba Ensemble, I thought it would be interesting to write a piece highlighting the attributes of some of the great tuba players I have known. The first movement, "Mr. P.", takes as its inspiration the great and elegant player Dan Perantoni. This movement is accordingly light and energic. "The New Breed" is a lyrical and flowing movement dedicated to Kent Ehselman, representative of the new generation of tuba players who will carry on the great work done by their predecessors. In "T.J. Bozo" I have tried to capture the thrill of hearing the sound of aggressive tuba playing after having heard Roger Bobo and Tommy Johnson in big orchestral works." --the composer
