At our friend Sierra's suggestion, Classical IPR has curated a playlist of music that stars the tuba.
We've included lots of pieces written specifically for the instrument by composers including Paul Hindemith, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Michael Daugherty and Jan Koetsier.
Among the tubists featured are Gene Pokorny, Patrick Sheridan, Carol Jantsch and James Gourlay, plus composer-tubists Kenneth Amis and Øystein Baadsvik.
Listen on demand below.
Did we miss something tuba-tacular that you think should be on the playlist? Let us know!
