Abstract Title

Historical Survey of repertoire from middle ages through 20th century for the adaptation of original works to create effective transcription for solo tuba.

Abstract

The aim of this study is to survey repertoire composed from the Middle Ages until the 20th Century and then transcribe select works from the middle ages through the 20th Century to Solo Tuba and Piano to see which type of work transcribes efficiently. The pieces transcribed vary from vocal works, to string compositions, as well as other instrumental pieces. Previous transcriptions from the Middle Ages to the 20th Century were used to guide the transcription process and to learn the idiosyncrasies of transcribing for solo tuba and piano. The overall goal of this research project is to create new transcriptions for tuba using previously published transcriptions as guides to transcribe pieces. Composers have recently started writing for solo tuba as early as 1954 with Ralph Vaughan Williams Concerto for Bass Tuba. Since original solo compositions are a new occurrence, Tubists must use transcriptions from other instruments to play pieces of different periods.

The aim of this study is to survey repertoire composed from the Middle Ages until the 20th Century and then transcribe select works from the middle ages through the 20th Century to Solo Tuba and Piano to see which type of work transcribes efficiently. The pieces transcribed vary in instrumentation. The overall goal of this research project is to create new transcriptions for tuba using previously published transcriptions as guides. Since original tuba solo compositions are a new occurrence, Tubists must use transcriptions from other instruments to play pieces of different periods. Six transcriptions were completed out of this study which varied from vocal and instrumental works.
