Tuba Concerto composed by John Golland. Arranged by Christiaan Janssen. For tuba and concert band. Baton Music Instrumental Series. Opus 46. Grade 5. Score. Duration 17:30. Published by Baton Music (BF.BM364-SCORE).
Only after John Golland passed away in 1993 the score of his Tuba Concerto Op. 46 was found. The first performance of this work was given by Andrew Duncan and the Halle Orchestra at the Halle Proms at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester, in July 1997. The work is considered as a revelation. It is a colorful piece with many fine touches of effective scoring and full of melodic charm. The slow movement is a beautifully atmospheric, exquisitely scored Nocturne.
