    First Suite in Eb - Gustav Holst

    If you haven't played First Suite, you are deprived. =P

    It features a Tuba/Euph duet at the beginning, and I think it is a very, very cool song.

    However, in the third movement, the tuba does get the stereotypical dum-dum thing. It's definitely more advanced than you usually run into, seeing as how you're keeping time for everyone else while attempting to move all over you range without having the momentum a long 16-note run gives you.

    Gustav Holst is awesome.

    Not sure if this is how to link a cross-post but:

    Found the parts available for download online. Add good pro recording and you're playing your favorite piece with a full band.

      I finally got the chance to play this piece this summer sitting in with the Ashland City Band. Fun times!
