I had the good fortune of playing this with a professional orchestra in a subscription series once. I really like pieces like the Brahms Requiem - where the tuba is allowed to do things other than "blatt". It is one of the rare occasions where one gets a hint as to what it must be like to play a "normal" (an instrument whose job is not normally relegated to blatting) instrument in a symphony orchestra.
