“Selections from 80 Studies Op.32” by Hans Sitt has been adapted for tuba by Erik Veldkamp from Sitt’s world famous 5 book series for the violin. This collection says “Selections” but includes just shy of all 80 studies (128 pages), only a few were removed because they were not applicable to brass playing. Generally, transcriptions are insanely difficult, but in this case, these studies work so well on the tuba you will think they were original. They have the added endurance element that a string study would supply, but they also have a beautiful melodious nature that is welcome in our repertoire and has been expertly adapted by Veldkamp.
As the challenges given to the modern player are always increasing, we need material that will push our limits, increase our range, test our endurance, and make sure that we are ready for anything that could be thrown at us in a professional setting.
