Product details

When my colleague Scott Kinmont approached me with the idea of composing a solo work for euphonium, my original intention was to create a sonata with piano accompaniment. However, as I began developing my musical ideas for the work it became clear that the colours and textures of my ideas could only be expressed through the use of the orchestra. I have used full strings and woodwinds but only one of each of the members of the brass family . This allows for better balance between soloist and orchestra, and also lends itself to using the brass players including the soloist as a chamber quintet. Although, as in my previous orchestral works, I use dodecaphonic or “12-tone” technique for creating most of the thematic material for this work, the lyric quality and warm tone of the euphonium have drawn me in the direction of a style that is less “contemporary” in tonality than my previous works. Indeed, the overall effect of this concerto is more conventional-sounding, despite the fact that 12-tone technique permeates its melodic aspects.
