  2. 12 Easy Duets for Tuba

    Composer: Paff, John
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary
    12 Easy Duets for Tuba is designed with young or inexperienced players in mind who may have limited or no previous experience with duets or chamber music. Rhythms, ranges and key signatures are limited in order to accommodate the player in adjusting to the concept of playing in harmony, as well as developing mutual cooperation necessary in playing a duet. The selections are in a variety of styles, while avoiding faster tempos that could add difficulty without benefit. While written to help instruct, the duets are intended to be performable. A young player can feel a great sense of accomplishment when performing a new (to the player) kind of music, and duets can feel more “safe” than a solo to a young performer. Enjoy the fun of playing duets! Learn More

  3. 14 Concert Duets for 2 Tubas or Bass Trombones

    Composer: Various Arranger: Self, Jim
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Bass Trombone, Tuba
    Genre: Classical

    2 tubas (or 2 bass trombones)

    or tuba/bass trombone with downloadable backing tracks (downloads included for both parts 1 and 2) – recorded by Zach Collins

    Concert Duets is a collection of 14 arrangements of works by prominent 18th-century composers, mostly taken from Trio Sonatas. Duet 11 is a Jim Self original work in the Rococo style; and Duets 12, 13 and 14 are arrangements of the three-movements of the Bach Concerto for Two Violins. Included with this edition are play-along recorded tracks by tubist Zach Collins, who also served as editor of the current edition.

    I created these duets as Christmas gifts for my tuba playing friends, with the first duet being arranged in 1976.  All 14 of the duets are challenging and fun to play and are especially effective as concert pieces.

    As a young musician I had the privilege of playing duets with many of the world’s finest tubists including Harvey Phillips, John Fletcher, Bob Pallansch, Chester, Schmitz, Dan Perantoni, Toby Hanks, Ron Bishop, Winston Morris and Tommy Johnson. I learned more about playing music in these duo sessions than from any other musical activity I have ever experienced. Duets are powerful teaching tools for learning and mastering rhythm, phrasing and intonation and for developing overall musicianship.

  7. Agreements and Disagreements

    Composer: Grant, Jerry
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Drum Set, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Drums

    From the composer:

    This piece was commissioned by Portugal Tubist, Sergio Carolino and inspired by taking 4 bar solos in a jazz framework, except that both do it simultaneously in this work, a kind of dueling tubas. So, there are times when the pair play the same rhythm in 3rd’s no less and others when they are completely opposed and “disagree”. It sometimes explores free tonality and at times is very tonal. A minor 3rd provides some of the building blocks for the jazz influenced work using jazz lines and phrasing jazz infused high energy piece, sometimes a wild fight and sometimes harmonious cooperation. It is recorded on Sergio’s CD, Agreements & Disagreements.

  8. Allegro et Andantango

    Composer: Robertson, Gail
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary
    Written for Nathan Giroux and Ross Kerley Allegro et Andantango was composed in 2010 and dedicated to two outstanding University of Central Florida tuba students, Ross Kerley and Nathan Giroux. The work begins with a fugue-like confrontation between the two tubas and then suddenly pulls back into a comforting melody that leads into the Andantango, (a 3/4 tango with a medium Andante tempo). Each player gets his or her chance at the melody as the other player accompanies along with the tango groove. Suddenly the battle returns with more intensity and it is later followed by the tango. However, the tango is no longer in 3/4, it is now in 4/4 with a twist. Once again, the encounter returns for the finale with only one tuba playing the battle theme as the other player cluelessly remains playing the tango. The two tubas finally return to the calming melody that seems to come to and end, and then... Learn More

  12. Breakfast Song, The

    Composer: Hanmer, Paul Arranger: Pierce, Benjamin
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Trombone, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    with 9 Trombones

    “The Breakfast Song” was written according to a strict brief that appeared to Angela in a dream some time during mid-September 2009. According to her dream, I was asked to write a piece of music using only the following “raw materials”:

    a blue bowl, a serving of muesli, two strawberries, a banana, a handful of nuts…

    Deciding how best to fulfill my brief coincided with a request from Sergio Carolino for something special for his 15 November 2009 Cine-Teatro de Alcobaca concert program and so “The Breakfast Song” is scored for 2 tubas and 9 trombones.
