‘Bari Bari Bassi’ was written for the 2nd EKODA Bari-Tuba Festival, held in Tokyo. The title has two meanings: “Groovy bass”, and the instrumentation, Baritone, Baritone, and Bassi (the plural of Basso). As a tuba player, the composer wanted to add a funky piece for the Euphonium-Tuba quartet repertoire. This piece features 2nd Tuba which plays like bass guitar style. Premiered by Euphonium Tuba Company Quartet on September 15th, 2012.
