This came in from a listener named J.G, who sent this a couple of weeks ago.: “I’m just reminding you that the first Friday in May is international tuba day. I’d like to suggest that you play the second movement of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Tuba Concerto that day. Cheers, — J.G.”
Thank you for reminding us, J.G., and here it is, featuring Derek Fenstermacher, Principal Tuba of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, recorded at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. Happy International Tuba Day, everyone!
