JONES, S.: Symphony No. 3, "Palo Duro Canyon" / Tuba Concerto (Olka, Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

“Samuel Jones is a sensitive musician with great imagination, and he is a real craftsman. These works should be part of the core of the great American repertoire” (Gerard Schwarz). Of his Symphony No. 3, Jones writes: “I wanted to capture in music that magical moment which everyone experiences when they first see the flat, treeless high plains fall dizzyingly away into the colorful vastness of the Palo Duro Canyon itself.” His Tuba Concerto, which Schwarz regards as “the finest solo work for that instrument ever produced”, was composed for the performers on this disc to showcase the instrument’s amazing range, agility and versatility and to spotlight Christopher Olka’s great artistry.
