Below is a description of Volume I of Orchestral Excerpts for Tuba with Piano accompaniment arranged by Japanese Tubist Takahiro Kim.

This new edition includes the following music: Piano accompaniment in print and MP3 digital files of the Piano accompaniment.

This edition does not include a separate Tuba (the tuba part is in the piano accompaniment part though), however, if the performer needs these parts, they are readily available in the Complete Collection of Low Brass Orchestra Music compiled by Gordon Cherry here.

Many tuba players (at any level) will play in an orchestra or practice the tuba part of a piece as part of their studies.

You will also have the opportunity to listen to reference recordings and study those pieces.

In this textbook, I have arranged the tuba part so that it can be played with piano accompaniment. (You may also use the included MP3 soundtracks).

Some pieces are difficult to understand from the orchestral soundtrack alone. I have transcribed the piano part as simply as possible.

By doing so, you will be able to clearly understand the relationship between the phrases, accompaniment patterns, harmonies, rhythms, and the relationship between the tuba part and the orchestra.

I have included many parts other than the ones to be played in the audition pieces. This is because I want you to practice with a strong image of the musicality and sound feeling used in those pieces. If you don't have a practice pianist, you can still practice using the included mp3 sound files. I think you will be able to fully understand the outline of the music.

Below are the works included in Volume I.

Bartok: Concerto for Orchestra & The Miraculous Mandarin - If you find these two pieces difficult to practice, please try listening to the accompaniment track while practicing. I'm sure the simplified accompaniment will help your performance.

Berg: Violin Concerto & Wozzeck - Of course, you can't get the whole point of the music from these excerpts alone, but I think they are a good starting point for studying these pieces. In particular, the Bombardon part in Act II is a very good exercise.

Berlioz: 7 Orchestral Works - I've included the orchestral section uncut because I want you to feel the music as you play it. Some of the sections may not be played at all in the actual audition, but they are very useful to understand his works.

Brahms: 4 Orchestral Works - I encourage you to practice all of the pieces. In addition to the 2nd symphony, there are many other useful and instructive pieces. It doesn't matter what key tuba you practice in. Practice over and over with the accompaniment track to get the ideal sound.

New material of additional excerpts will be made available soon.

Below is a digital sample of the piano part that is available with purchase.
