Outlining a brief Mexican history of the orchestral tuba as a solo instrument is an adventure across unknown territory. There's no local catalog dating the former century to consult and, within existing compositions, we could only find the tuba performing as part of an ensemble. lt is the current century that frames the creation and dissemination of novel repertoire for solo tuba by Mexican composers. This production includes eight works, six of which were especially commissioned for this project.
