Misc. Comments

Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra reflects the composer's interest in the intersection of eastern and western cultures as evident in the emphasis on pitched percussion and various contrapuntal techniques, particularly in the outer movements. Baroque performance practices (strong beat, terraced dynamics) are to be observed. More specifically, the concerto utilizes a cinematic perspective, beckoning the listener to reflect on tragedy and then revealing two past moments that led to the Lament. In addition, the tuba can be considered to play the role of sage.
