Prelude in D Minor, WAB 130
Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) is beloved in the low brass community for his fantastic symphonic writing for tuba and trombones in his symphonic works. Tubists have also claimed his choral works in many arrangements for various tuba ensembles.
Prelude in D Minor, WAB 130 is a short organ chorale, presented here transcribed for Tuba/Euphonium quartet. Although the work is probably too short to be performed on its own, this chorale can be combined with other Bruckner transcriptions to create a suite or used as a warm-up.
