    Flugelhorn, Tuba and Piano

    Written for Robin Sisk and Fred Green, 2016

    The piece is marked “wistfully” at the beginning. In my mind, I see a young man standing in a field digging in the ground. As he looks up, he can imagine the bounty he is cultivating and the farm that will one day be there. How easy it is to become distracted by other things, to be swept away by promises that swiftly sour and turn to conflict, dashing our dreams and ripping them from us. This piece is a reminder to keep cultivating our own dreams and to respect the dreams of others.

  11. Shipped - Winks 'n Jinks

    Composer: Self, Jim
    Instrumentation: Solo and Ensemble Instruments: Trombone, Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary
    Tuba and 4 Trombones

    In the fall of 1995, Norm Pearson asked me to compose a piece for him that he could premier at the 1996 Brassfest. He wanted a piece for solo tuba and four trombones that would feature the L.A Philharmonic trombonists and one that other tubists could perform with their colleagues. With Norm’s particular technical and musical abilities in mind, I wrote Winks ‘n Jinks. The work is in one movement with many sections. A beginning fanfare is followed by section in 5/8 occupies the center a multi-textured funk section ina bouncy and lop-sided allegretto. The slow legato of the work. The longest and most demanding part is which polyrhythms predominate. While Winks ‘n Jinks is essentially a virtuoso work for solo tuba, the individual trombone parts are quite demanding. The bass trombone part is the true bass part–a role that I know all bass trombonists relish. The premiere was performed by Norm and trombonists Bill Booth, Byron Peebles, Andy Malloy and Jeff Reynolds. The title is a condensation of tiddlywinks and hi-jinks which describe the rather whimsical nature of the piece. Learn More

  15. Violone Concerto

    Composer: Capuzzi, Antonio Arranger: Self, Jim
    Instrumentation: Solo and Brass quintet Instruments: 2 Trumpets, Horn, Trombone and Tuba, Tuba
    Genre: Classical
    Capuzzi’s Violone Concerto is a staple solo work for double bassists. It was written for the Violone (big viol), a five or six string predecessor to the double bass which, like the tuba, was a contra- bass instrument. This arrangement for Solo Tuba and Brass Quintet will give it new life and present tubists with a piece to perform with their brass colleagues. Giuseppe Antonio Capuzzi (1753-1818) was an Italian composer and violinist from Bergamo who, at times, lived in Venice and London. The work is a typical three movement classical concerto, fast-slow-fast. The Allegro moderato is in sonata form and opens with a brass quintet statement, solo tuba first theme, secondary theme and development. A tuba cadenza is followed by the recapitulation and an ending in the brass. The second movement is a beautiful Andante cantabile in the dominant. Short brass solos compliment the tuba throughout. The finale is a fast Rondo with a slightly slower section in the parallel minor. The movement ends with a technical flourish by the tuba and in all the brass. This piece works better for tuba than most transcriptions because doesn't require octave transpositions or an uncommonly high solo part.

    James Gourlay and the River City Brass recorded this piece on their "Tour de Force" CD.

    The Rondo was recorded by members of the Pacific Symphony Orchestra on Jim Self’s CD, Changing Colors--Summit DCD 132.

    Performance suggestions: This music is “classical” and needs a delicate touch—especially in the brass quintet accompaniment. A sense of balance with the solo tuba is paramount and forte passages should be tempered. An Eb Trumpet might be a good choice for the 1st part. A good seating would be in a semi-circle, in score order with the tuba opposite the 1st trumpet-- bell out to the audience Learn More
