Axis for Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble
Composer Kevin McKenzie says, "Axis deals with 2 themes that were inspired by the music of Dmitri Shostakovich and their interaction with each other while new thematic motifs are added throughout. This piece was written for the University of Memphis Tuba Ensemble’s second CD entitled Axis, under the direction of Kevin Sanders. First premiered at the Tennessee’s Music Educator Conference in 2014, this work was also performed at ITEC that same year."
