Composer James Grant says, “Endgame was intended to be the third and final movement of tba4tet, a work commissioned by a consortium of 48 participants made up of individuals and tuba-euphonium quartets. This music stands on its own as a three-and-a-half minute virtuoso romp for tuba-euphonium quartet – a piece that is probably best put at the end, not at the beginning of the program. Endgame, marked ‘Giving it all you’ve got’, is a tour de force display of syncopation, somewhat eccentric meters, frantic double-tonguing, and a brief episode of pagan raunch (whatever that is), all supported by a brutally relentless second tuba bass line that views oxygen to be of no importance whatsoever. Endgame is dedicated with thanks to Matt Tropman, Kelly Thomas, Mark Nelson and Don Harry, who premiered the work at the 2008 ITEC in Cincinnati, OH.”
