Sonata for Tuba and Piano.
Premiere
00:00 / 06:51

...for tuba and piano. Dude.

1991

(In Three Movements)

Imagine a weary, disgruntled circus elephant, patiently poised on a platform, a parasol held aloft in his trunk. Consider his hollow blue lament, when the crowds have gone away, leaving him alone with his hay in a holding pen. Not surprisingly, he might very well charge out of his cage at an unguarded moment to confront his trainer, whose retreat might be futile. The sonata is not about any of this, but you might hear something similar.
