This three movement sonata was written in the Autumn of 2003 at the request of Delia Triggel. It is a virtuoso work, and a slow movement is flanked by 2 quicker movements, the last of which is a frantic but humorous rondo in which the tuba plays extremely fast. The language of this work is a great deal more openly melodic and straightforward than that of the composer's Tuba Concerto, a 45 minute work written for John Fletcher in 1972.
