Horn Quartets, Played on Wagner Tubas
When we got the Wagner tubas, we thought it would be helpful to play some familiar horn quartet music for warm-ups, and just to get a feel for the instrument. On horns we use Four-Part Bach Chorales (Breitkopf edition) for warm-ups, so we picked out a couple of those, plus two classic horn quartets.
The clips were recorded at our practice sessions in March - April 2008. There were other people in the house some of the time, so you might notice some background noise.
