This is a new arrangement of mine that was released just a little bit ago (Potenza) and I thought I'd share with everyone here. This is Bazzini's "Calabrese" from a collection of pieces for violin (Op.34) that I've set for Tuba. If you remember, Ben Pierce did an arrangement of Bazzini's "Dance of the Goblins" and recorded it on his CD, 'Cheers'. Steve Mead also recorded that same piece on his CD, 'Fandango'. Dr. Pierce actually premiered my version for Euphonium back in February at Univ. of Arkansas.

This is very similar in that it is an encore type piece, very technical, but very enjoyable.
