Tony Clements

Tony Clements, principal tubist with Symphony Silicon Valley, recently performed the Vaughan Williams and got a great review:

Clements sweetly lingered over the opening notes of the cadenza in the first movement, before plunging to a subterranean rumble; he grew innocently rapturous in the slow second movement, which is tuneful as an English air; he toyed with a trill in the final movement’s cadenza (he arranged both cadenzas), and then moved a lot of air through the climactic notes.

The San Jose Mercury news also published this interview with Tony. Looking at this picture makes me realize that I should not be keeping my tubas upside down on their bell! I guess I should order a few of these.
