Gene and Sam at their best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are very few tuba concertos written for Contrabass CC tuba and this one definately fits the bill. Rather than make me fall asleep with all sorts of violinesque acrobatics, this concerto demonstrates the huge sonic and resonant qualities that contrabass tubas are capable of. I hope other composers of tuba literature follow Mr.Anderson's lead."
Greatest tuba concerto yet... a must own for ALL musicians!

"I can't even begin to describe the incredible power and emotion in this tuba concerto. Not since I first heard the Jager Concerto for Bass Tuba have I been so excited by a work of music for this instrument. One of few large solo works written for CC tuba, and done masterfully! All the other reviews are dead on, the tuba concerto is by far one of the greatest works for this great instrument yet, and in time is sure to become a standard of writing for our contrabass instrument. I sincerely hope that composers in the future use this as a model for the writing of tuba concerti, then we can be assured that our library of repetoire will only get better. I can honestly say that this is the only work for solo and orchestra that I have not a single complaint for. The performances by both Sam Pilafian, and the orchestra are both phenominal. Don't let the fact that it's a University Orchestra turn you off of the recording, their musicianship rivals that of any of the large name orchestras in the world. The only negative point is that I am only alloted 1000 words to write this review... in one word, though: EXCELLENT!"
Composition for the Gods

"You would never think that you could have a tuba concerto stuck in your head for days, humming movement by movement. This is the effect of Eugene Anderson and his Tuba Concerto in B minor. As a college tubist, after listening to this recording over and over again, this is the first concerto I want to learn. I think it will be the same for most other tubists who listen to this cd, and non-tubists will want to pick up that twenty pounds of brass."
