Dreadnought explores the virtuosic potential of the tuba through the lens of a rhapsodic tone poem. Weaving together melodic fragments into a cohesive musical structure, Dreadnought unleashes the power of the tuba with heroic leaps and colorful flourishes. As the composition unfolds, Dreadnought employs heightened contrasts and extremes of dynamic and range, revealing the uniquely emotive voice of the solo tuba.
