If you have not yet performed Pastoral Tune, (piano + tuba) program it for this semester or next. You AND your accompanist AND your audience will really enjoy the beautiful calming nature of this piece. (See Latest Additions 10-04-08, above)
Speaking of programming: Take a look at 2:31 A.M. (tuba + piano). This is a work that contains a great deal of tension and some release of said tension. It also features an improvised cadenza. This piece could be followed very nicely by the above mentioned Pastoral Tune. (See February Additions: 2-14-09 for 2:31 A.M.)
