    • When I visit a member's profile, it would be nice, I think, to see a list of links to that person's music, that is, to pieces previously posted on this site.
    • Nice piece! Very virtuosic, demonstrates the tuba's full musical capacity. Sounds to me like a series of miniatures to a degree because it's sort of a chain of themes with little development and lots of pauses in between them. A few very small details:
      0:31: the resolution was unexpectedly delayed, which wasn't the nicest. Not a big issue, however.
      6:44: I would've expected an A in the melody line of the piano part during the resolution, rather than E.
      9:20: would've been nice if the upbeat in the tuba were louder
      9:30: odd phrase ending, would've been nice with an added G (tuba)
    • Nice piece. Due to its lack of melody, it is best use as background music. I can tell it's incomplete. It was a bit unsettling tempo wise for me, but that's al&
    • This is a tuba concerto with piano I have been working on for quite a while. Originally this was meant to span multiple movements but I decided to run the movements together and give it cyclic properties. The sustain pedal on the piano is just holding out on this midi rendering so it gets muddy and the 8va markings cause both staves to move up or down an octave for whatever reason even if I didn't write it like that. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and criticism is welcome. 
    • Thanks mates for your feedback. I know, the end is not the best, time to time I have troubles with ending some pieces. This was one of those cases. What I am seeing now is that I need to practice/study more left hand techniques, as I am not a pianist (I play keyboard, but not as a real pianist). Rgds, Ricardo
