Mountain Mischief

Tuba & Synthesized Sound
13 minutes | 1981
Score 17 pages

This early work for tuba with synthesized accompaniment makes extraordinary demands upon the soloist in terms of range, disjunctness, stamina, rhythm, and synchronization. There is an extended middle passage of driving intensity and total abandon where the two parts are locked together in utter busyness, but there also are many brooding and moody passages involving an interplay of parts, or question and answer. The overall mood is capricious.
