Paul Lovatt-Cooper has been commissioned to compose a brand new work for international tuba soloist and virtuoso Les Neish. The work will get its world premier in the USA at the latter end of this year. Les, who has always been a leading light in commissioning new works to contribute to the brass repertoire, is a big fan of Paul's music. Commenting on the commission Les said ďIíve always wanted to commission Paul but he has been so busy it hasnít been possible until now. He has a great ability to compose fabulous sonorous melodies and so this opportunity to work with him is very exciting Ė I canít wait to see what he conjures upĒ.

The piece which hasnít got a title yet will be given exclusive rights for Les to perform and record before being published. But tuba fans will be able to purchase the piece later in 2011 exclusively at PLC Music.
