Joe L. Alexander
Composer, tubist and educator
My Partita #4 was selected for the Semifinal Round of the 2019 International Tuba Euphonium Association's Solo Euphonium - Artist Division competition. Sixteen performers play the piece at the 2019 ITEC in Iowa City, Iowa.
I have just completed several new pieces, including Forrest at Dusk (Danielle Moreau and Danielle VanTuinen) and a set of trios, duets and solos (for 2 trombones and tuba). I'm in the final stages of working on a mixed quartet for James Gourlay, Joanna Ross Hersey, Danielle Moreau and Danielle VanTuinen. (euphonium, 2 tubas and percussion) and a piano duo for Julia Mortyakovia and Valentin Bogdan.
Upcoming Composition Performances
Marumsco (soundfile) will be performed at Tumbling Creek Preserves, as part of the NACUSA Mid-South chapter's A Walk in Georgia State Parks.
I was supposed to be performing several trios for 2 trombones & tuba, and they include Alan Goldspiel's A Winter's Tale; Valentin M. Bogdan's Subterranean Thoughts; Biraj Adhikari's Midnight and Nightmare; and my piece, The Land of Maximus, on several concerts held in Alabama and Mississippi, but I don't know when the concerts will resume because of the virus.
