The video gem below comes care of Steve Dumaine, Principal Tuba of the National Symphony. Here, he shows his range — not only giving his high-end chops a workout by playing a well-known piece outside of the standard tuba repertoire, but also doing it on a rather atypical instrument.
Random other thoughts:
- I like this video so much that I was willing to set aside my usual disdain for videos filmed in portrait mode. (Really people, every video screen you watch — TVs, laptops monitors, etc. — is set up in landscape, so please hold your phone that way when you make your next film epic. Or if you can keep your cinematic opus to just 6 seconds, use Vine, since it uses that social-media-friendly square format).
