Paul Creston: Invocation & Dance, Op. 58
I first learned this piece through the Torchinsky 20th Century excerpt book. There is a
nice little solo in the upper register.
Paul Hindemith: Mathis der Maler and Symphonic Metamorphoses
I really like Floyd Cooley's playing in the San Francisco Symphony of these pieces. Lots of low and soloistic playing.
John Adams: Short Ride on a Fast Machine
Adams doesn't use tuba too often but this piece uses a wide pitch range and is a fun part.
Aaron Copland: Symphony No. 3
This part has some nice melodic material and has some low stuff in the first movement.
Silvestre Revueltas: Homenaje A Federico Garcia Lorca and Sensemaya
The tuba parts in these are some of the most challenging rhymically I've ever come across.
