Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a CD of virtuoso tuba playing. Many works were written specifically for the artist, and all are breathtaking examples of exceptional technique and musicianship.

"This CD exhibits musicianship of the highest order with all brass afficionados requirements of beautiful tone, timbre and clean technique; it is a CD to enjoy...repeatedly". -- Harvey G. Phillips, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Indiana University
