Capriccio for Solo Tuba and Wind Band

Composer Rodney Newton has scored music for films and TV, and was Music Consultant to the London Film School for 21 years. His Capriccio for Solo Tuba and Wind Band is a lush composition in the Romantic style, featuring the lyrical and technical virtuosity of the tuba. The instrument was a late arrival to the symphony orchestra and familiar solo repertoire (i.e. solos for violin, clarinet, cello, etc.). The work is scored in the tuba’s tenor range and is punctuated with rapid rhythms and soaring melodies that capture the beautiful voice and timbre of the instrument. (Source: James R. O'Dell.)
