Teutonic Tales is a suite for tuba inspired by Germanic and Nordic mythology. The suite was composed for and is dedicated to Mike W. Roylance, principle tubist in the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Mvt. 1 - Demon Dance - In German mythology, a demon is a supernatural being that is generally described as a malevolent spirit. The countless tales of trolls, werewolves, and other figures in Teutonic folklore have stirred imaginations for centuries. Mvt. 2 - Freya - Freya was the goddess of beauty and love. A beautiful, blonde, blue-eyed young woman, she was the sister of Frey and in later traditions the wife of Odin. Mvt. 3 - Thor's Hammer - Thor was the personification of thunder and the principal war god. He was armed with a hammer that returned to his hand after he hurled it at enemies, a belt that doubled his strength when he wore it, and iron gloves that helped him use the hammer effectively.
