Tuba music! ARRRRGGHHH!!
I defended it as a genre for 15 years, but now see the error of my ways. The rest of the world was RIGHT!
Simon is right - I DID have a huge library of material; 300 sonatas and concertos, and 200 other works. It is now all in the Royal College of Music Library in London, where I deposited it last summer.
I got it from the Robert King catalogue, from June Emerson's catalogue and from approaching composers direct.
Lots of it is drivel; lots of it is good; pot luck really. But better than playing studies, I always thought.
