Through this programme, the audience will discover the tuba in a repertoire going from the 19th century until today. French music is put forward with for example extracts from Carmen (Bizet) and Samson & Dalila (Saint-Saëns). The first part of the program is classical, and the second part is more contemporary with pieces from South America, film music and improvisations.

The ensemble recorded an album “In the mood for tuba” in 2014 (Fondamenta, distributed by Sony Music and Naxos).
