dc.description.abstract The purpose of this document is to provide those teaching and performing Anthony Plog's Tuba Sonata with information that will help them better prepare this piece of music through a thorough study of the various stylistic and compositional elements of the piece. In addition, this document will seek to highlight the important connections to Plog's other works for tuba, thereby assisting in the preparation and interpretation of Plog's output for the solo tuba. This document is in two parts. The first part documents Plog's musical development throughout his career as a performer and composer, highlights his effort to expand the tuba's solo repertoire, and connects the Tuba Sonata to his larger body of work. The second part presents a thorough study of the technical and musical demands of the Tuba Sonata. Using performance suggestions, including tuba and mute selection, ideas on phrasing, tempo choice, and a discussion of the performer's concept of style, the document provides performers with a better understanding of the challenges encountered in the piece. In addition, practice exercises composed by Plog and the author of this document have been included to assist performers in preparing for the many challenges found throughout the piece.
