Tobu Raqus (for euphonium, marimba, and cajon)

15.00

Tobu Raqus was commissioned by and written for euphoniumist Patrick Geren. Patrick wanted a piece that would be playable by a large number of euphonium players (higher, faster, louder was not the goal). I pitched the idea of a piece based on two scales: a modified Arabic scale and an Okinawan scale. "Tobu Raqus" translates as "Eastern Dances." Duration ca. 4'45"
