John Stevens (b. 1951) is Professor of Tuba and Euphonium at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to being a member of the Wisconsin Brass Quintet, a UW-Madison faculty ensemble-inresidence, he is also a member of the acclaimed tuba/euphonium ensemble Symphonia. The works on this recording include everything from pieces Stevens first performed 35 years ago to some that are quite new to him. Composers from nine countries are represented! The only work on this recording originally written for the tuba is Stevens’s own Elegy, composed in 2004. Everything else has been arranged, transcribed or simply adapted for tuba and piano, tuba, euphonium and piano, or solo tuba.
