Odd Bedfellows (Flute and Tuba) by Gary Schocker (b. 1959), Published by Theodore Presser, Includes two performance scores.
Composed for the unusual combination of Flute and Tuba, Odd Bedfellows may also be performed with Bassoon. Movement 1 is titled “At the Hippo Watering Hole,” and is full of scenic imagery. The beautiful Movement 2 takes place “Among the Pine Barrens” and features tuneful Tuba writing in its tenor register from middle C up to G. The playful Movement 3 is a game “In and Out the Window,” leading to Movement 4 “Under the Big Top.”
