    HEXAGON by Anne McGinty

    Six pieces for Tuba or Euphonium

    I. Timespan —Tuba or Euphonium and Piano

    Written in arch form (A-B-C-B-A) this piece contrasts slow, lyrical and expressive with fast, decisive and well articulated. Intervals (timespans) play an important role throughout.

    II. Contours —Tuba or Euphonium and Piano

    This piece is a line drawing for the soloist, with an opportunity for individual creative expression. The piano part is unobtrusive, allowing the soloist to have the spotlight in this slow, lyrical movement.

    III. Juxtaposition — Tuba or Euphonium and Piano

    As the title suggests, the solo instrument and the piano often trade parts in this fast, but not too fast movement. Rhythmical accuracy is integral to this multi-meter piece.

    [Note: The first three movements can be combined and played as a three-movement work.]

    IV. Duality — Duets for Tuba or Euphonium

    Six diverse duets, each with their own personality, are included: “Sassy” has attitude, “Wistfully” is slow and contemplative, “Off and on” features syncopation, “Lopsidedly” is in 5/8, “Modestly” is indeed unpretentious, and “”Doppler” has the Doppler effect.

    V. Detours — Unaccompanied Tuba or Euphonium

    A two-movement unaccompanied solo piece contrasts Freely (slow) with Freely (fast). It offers the soloist an opportunity to creatively express any and all emotions, and will encourage confidence in interpretive skills and stage presence.

    VI. Connections — Tuba or Euphonium and Piano

    Based on an intervallic and rhythmic motif, the final movement is a delightful romp through contrasting styles and meter changes, a showcase for the soloist.
