The best thing I could recommend is the article Philip Catelinet wrote for the T.U.B.A. Journal around 1984-1985. The title is "The Truth Behind the Vaughan-Williams Tuba Concerto" or something to that effect. It details the entire background of the concerto, including the premiere. Also try to find the original score (the only edition that is copied by hand). That will bring to light much of the debate about articulations and note discrepancies that occur when comparing the various editions. Good luck, and feel free to email me with any questions.
