"One of the great new classical composers of the post World War II era ... this wild, brilliant work scored for - dig this - tuba, four flutes, two oboes, two bassoons, four horns, and a gang of percussion ... with a degree of composer's virtuosity bordering almost on the whimsical ... I think of "Chamber Concerto for Tuba" as Wuorinen's masterpiece." Village Voice
