Beethoven: Symphony no. 5, excerpt from I. Allegro con brio
for Tuba Quartet, with optional Timpani
Originally created for the 2020 Philadelphia Orchestra Tuba/Euph PlayIN, this arrangement condenses the first movement of Beethoven 5 down to only the parts that a typical tuba player remembers or knows about. Set for two euphoniums (including both bass clef and treble clef parts) and two tubas, there’s also a bonus timpani part in case you really want to overwhelm your audience/make Beethoven roll over in his grave.
