Avant-garde repertoire is a common choice for young tubists looking for more advanced music with which to challenge themselves. However, atonal music, like William Kraft's Encounters II, presents potentially new difficulties to young tubists. An analysis of the piece will be presented in this project report, discussing organization of pitches, rhythmic elements of the piece, and the significant use of extended techniques. Furthermore, recordings available from different performers will be compared, including; comparisons of instruments used, with specific attention to instrument key and set-up; which of the three available editions were used to learn the piece; and how the individual performers decided to interpret the piece in comparison to the original recording by Roger Bobo. By developing a working knowledge of how the piece is organized and what potential difficulties lay ahead, young tubists can make decisions in order to maximize the success of the learning process.
