    The notion of combining the colors of the soprano voice and tuba was (to the best of this writer’s knowledge) first explored by Rodger Vaughan with his work “Three Songs for Soprano and Tuba,” a work which utilized lyrics by John Updike, and a later work titled “Have You...

    Ever? Six Songs for Soprano and Tuba.” Robert Chamberlin’s “Vocalise” offers a different approach to Vaughan’s offerings in this work. This work, which is without lyrics, explores the contrasting colors of the voice and the tuba, casting the piano in the role of providing connective tissue, allowing both performers to be freed from being cast as an accompaniment. The general demeanor of the work is more serious in nature than the Vaughan works, which are more to the “lighter side” in intent. This work presents the opportunity for an interesting color contrast for any recital that features either the soprano voice or the tuba as the central focus.
