Notes and Editorial Reviews

It’s still rather unusual to see the tuba as a solo instrument, although the repertoire contains some musicals pearls and has gained significant growth in recent decades. For instance Ralph Vaughn Williams did compose a concerto that explores the possibilities of the instrument with virtuoso passages; Willi March does the same in his divertimento for the surprisingly charming combination with the harp. A few years ago, Andrea Csollány wrote Prayer for the orchestra of the Nationaltheater Mannheim under Walter Hilgers, and it makes a brilliant companion to the Vaughan Williams, and the other featured works. Siegfried Jung, born in Timisoara, studied orchestral playing with tuba as principle instrument at the Musikhochschule Franz Read more Liszt in Weimar with Walter Hilgers. Since 1999, he has been a tuba player in the Orchester des Nationaltheaters Mannheim. He has gained a wide reputation in Germany and abroad through his long teaching experience at the music conservatoires in Frankfurt am Main and alongside solo appearances and receives regular invitations to teach at master classes.
