For solo tuba and piano

Tuba | Camile Saint-Saëns was always trying to expand the rather sparse repertoire for chamber music for wind instruments. The trombone also came into its own as a solo instrument with the Cavatine, composed in 1915. It displays here its lyrical, romantic side. To date the Cavatine, an effective recital piece, is a milestone in the solo literature for advanced trombone players.
