Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mellow, portly, and ponderous: this is the tuba, you believe? Multi-award-winning young tuba player Constantin Hartwig does away with all the cliches. His debut release, appearing in the Genuin Primavera Edition, reveals the winner of the 2016 Deutscher Musikwettbewerb to be a swinging, dynamic, and breathtakingly virtuoso musical force of nature who practically gives his instrument a new face. The works he presents here bear such titles as ''pearls'', ''Silhouettes'', and ''The Liberation of Sisyphus''. Crossing boundaries, expanding repertoire, and performed at a dizzyingly high level: join in and swing along! Mellow, portly, and ponderous: this is the tuba, you believe?
