    Does anyone know of a CD recording of the Derek Bourgeois Tuba Concerto, either studio recorded or live? I bought the solo part yesterday and would like a recording to ease the pain of practicing it! I know it was written for Fletch, but I don't know if he ever did a recording of it.

    Chris, I haven't been able to find a listing for this from my usual sources.
    I have my doubts if anyone has attempted to record it.
    I remember reading an article about it years ago (probably by John Fletcher in Sounding Brass) and it sounded as if it was a bit of an epic at over 40 minutes long!

    It is over 40 mins I think. Having seen the part I can see why no one has got round to doing a recording... it would take a while! It's more like a symphony with tuba feature, and it's riddled with tricky time signatures. I was hoping there might be a live one knocking about somewhere though. Never mind! :)
  4. i thought phil from fodens did something with it not too long ago, but then again, im probably wrong

    For a solo with band the Sparke is hard to beat (and play!!)
