Excerpt from "Foreward" by Donald C. Little:
"The publication Sixty Etudes, Opus 5 by Georg Kopprasch, edited for tuba by Dr. Jerry Young, is much more than a companion to the well known Sixty Etudes, Opus 6 by Kopprasch for low horn. Composed originally for high horn, they have been played and and studied for almost two centuries by brass players throughout the world. These Opus 5 Etudes comprise a body of valuable material that not only meets but exceeds the variety and musical interest of the original sixty etudes. This 'new' Kopprasch is essential for all tubists [and bass trombonists], particularly for the players of Eb and F bass tubas."
