Finally! Rainmaker for Tubas and Piano

Posted: September 26, 2014 in Blog

Rainmaker; Fantasy for Tubas and Piano – For Rachel Matz

Originally premiered as a work for large percussion ensemble (9 batterys) and after multiple requests, I have arranged this piece so it can be performed with just one (fiendishly good) pianist.  Here is the incomparable Rachel Matz premiering this version.

Here is a rendering with slightly better audio

Difficulty: College/Professional Duration: 15′ Instrumentation: Tuba Solo, Tuba/Euphonium Quartet, Piano

Reduction (for Piano and Quartet accomp.) for those who attend schools in which the PERCUSSION students are so good, they need to be paid to do a recital.   However, this requires a FIENDISHLY good pianist.
