The Tuba Rocks

There’s something very distinctive about the lovable tuba. Here are some historical notes.

Johann Gottfried Moritz first patented the bass tuba in the year 1835. Further mid-nineteenth century contributions to the instrument’s construction were made by Cerveny and Adolphe Sax.

Currently in the United States, preferred models of the tuba are the CC or BB flat types. In Europe, the tuba in F is quite popular. Tenor tubas (euphoniums) are used primarily in military and brass bands.

Vaughan Williams wrote a wonderful concerto for this instrument in 1955. Hindemith and Malcolm Arnold, among many others, also contributed some nice solo material. Virtuoso players of note, both past and present include William Bell, Philip Catelinet and Roger Bobo.
