A collection of Works by American and British composers for tuba solo and tuba and piano.

The aim of this recording was to capture the feeling and the intimate atmosphere of a „Hauskonzert,“ a long-standing tradition in German-speaking countries. “Impromptu” is a snapshot in a wide range of musical experiences; a moment of rest in the hustle and bustle of a professional musician’s existance.

You can order the CD from me directly or from Köbl. The CD is now also available on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and others!

CD reviews:

"Well played, and well recorded, but most of all, a tastefull and well rounded selection of pieces: diverse and yet it all fits well together and creates a beautiful atmosphere. My compliments!" --- Robert Bauer, Trombonist

"Fantastic Solo Tuba Recording! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Joseph Bartz's latest release entitled 'Impromptu'. I highly recommend this recording to anyone interested in hearing the wide expressive range of the solo Tuba. Each track tells a musical story and is masterfully interpreted. Also included is Bartz's original composition 'Concertino' - a three movement work for tuba and piano."

--- Erik Helm Composer, USA
