  1. Onwards and Upwards

    Composer: Gulino, Frank
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Piano, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano:

    In early 2017, Dr. Chris Combest approached me about writing a new piece for tuba and piano to be premiered at the 2018 U.S. Army Band Tuba-Euphonium Workshop, where Chris had been invited to perform as a guest soloist. As Chris and I discussed the different directions this new piece could take, one idea swiftly broke away from the pack and excited both of us very much. 

    "Onwards and upwards" is a favorite saying of Dr. Jerry Young, longtime professor of music at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he taught tuba and euphonium, among other things, from 1983 until 2016. In addition to being a friend and mentor to generations of low brass players, Jerry has enjoyed a multifaceted career as a soloist, clinician, lecturer, adjudicator, and additionally served as President of the International Tuba Euphonium Association (ITEA) and as Editor in Chief of the ITEA Journal. Chris expressed a desire to dedicate a new piece to Jerry, one that embodied the energy and optimism of this revered pedagogue and his "onwards and upwards" mantra. Over the course of his remarkable career, Jerry has been a profound influence on so many tuba players, and it is my absolute privilege to dedicate this new work to Dr. Jerry Young. Onwards and upwards!

  6. The Phoenix

    Composer: Nunes, Matthew
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Piano, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano; 

    The Phoenix is a tour de force piece for tuba and piano commissioned by Kayla Davis. The piece represents the internal and external struggles associated with challenging a mindset that desperately needs repair but refuses to listen. Daunting chords signify a near-impossible foe while the tuba represents a lone phoenix fighting for change. Inevitably the phoenix is wounded and nears defeat. It is in this time that the slightest glimmer of hope gives way to rebirth – a stronger and wiser version of the phoenix charges forth, refusing to yield. The work ends triumphantly but whether the battle has been won or our phoenix has escaped to see another day is up to the listener to discern. 

    The material of this work is derived from a seven-note motive created by assigning each letter in the word “phoenix” to a pitch. There are also several references to composers and works Kayla and I were performing during the piece’s inception. Some references are harmonic or rhythmic, some are structural, and others cry out at the frustrations associated with daily life in a place where the mindset needs challenging. 

    The Phoenix premiered April 19th, 2015 by Kayla Davis (tuba) and Elisabeth Tomczyk (piano) at the Hartt School of Music.

    Zero to Sixty encapsulates the thrill of driving the fastest street-legal car in the world: the Tesla S P100D, which can go from zero to sixty mph in under two and a half seconds. The work is a tour de force for the soloist, demanding a great deal of flexibility and dexterity. Zero to Sixty was written for and premiered by Preston Light, at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music in 2017. Buckle up!

    This story was written for my friend Hiroaki Shiomi about his love for his children.

    Here is the story: 

    It is getting close to bedtime. We see the children. They are so sweet and beautiful. The mother takes charge and starts to make sure that they do everything they need to do before bed. They pick up their toys, wash their hands and faces, brush their teeth, start to read a story etc., etc., and everything is very calm. They are even getting more tired and sleepy. Then Daddy comes in and he wants to play! He picks them up and plays with them, making them laugh and laugh. The children and Daddy run around together, laughing, playing and being silly. Before long the children become so tired that they cannot play anymore. Daddy and Mommy put them to bed together and they fall asleep while their parents watch. Together they are perfect parents and love their children in every way.
