This piece was recorded live at my DMA II recital in Austin TX. I first heard this piece about 15 years ago on a recording my wife has. It is originally a coloratura aria from the opera La Reine Topaz. Once I heard it, I knew someday I was going to arrange it for myself. So I did. :-)
Also from my DMA II recital, Sonata for Tuba and Piano by John Cheetham is a really nice piece and fun to play.
The next two pieces were recorded live from my DMA I recital. They were arranged by Charles Villarrubia. Since my wife is a singer, I have known of these pieces for some time so I was excited to be able to play these fine arrangements.
The next piece was written by Astor Piazzolla and arranged by Oystein Baadsvik. I love this piece.
This piece was recorded live at a chamber music concert. I arranged this trio version of Claude Bolling's Allegre from Maurice Andre's recording called Toot Suite. Joining me on trumpet is my very dear friend Dr. Jared Broussard.
This piece was written for my tuba duo Loose Canons by James D. Thornton, former euphonium soloist with the Pres. Own Marine Band. He is also a wonderful composer! This piece was fun to put together. I'm playing tuba 1 and my duo partner Dr. Danny Frost is playing tuba 2.
