  1. Lyrics that Include "Euphonium" - Floral Dance

    I first became familiar with the song "Floral Dance" from the movie "Brassed Off" and a few brass band recordings. It's an unusual and catchy tune with a compelling rhythm. I did not realize until recently that the lyrics for the vocal version include a mention of the euphonium, which makes this one of only a few songs that do.

    Here is the vocal version:

    Here is an instrumental by the great Brighouse & Rastrick brass ...

  4. Mozart Duet for Tubas (Baadsvik & Zilincik) - Video

    Here is a new video of Tony Zilincik and Oystein Baadsvik performing my arrangement of the Mozart Sonata KV 292 as a duet for two tubas. The tuba duet version music can be found on the tuba sheet music page. It is also available for euphonium and tuba (found on the same page) and for two euphoniums on the euphonium sheet music page.

  5. New Video: Trevor Groom, Euphonium Solo - Home on the Range

    There is a brand-new video on the Euphonium Videos page. This one is from 1972 (actually, it is audio and a still photo) and features the great Trevor Groom performing Home on the Range. The solo was arranged by Erik Leidzen for euphonium and brass band. Nice performance!

    As you listen, keep in mind that this was "old technology." He used an old-style Besson, no trigger, no gold plating or anything!

  7. Heredity and Embouchures

    Brass players often ponder embouchures because the way our chops do their work is so critical to the results we get out of the horn. When I was as undergrad the trend was to try to get all players to fit a specific model - slight "frown" at the corners, mouthpiece pointed downward somewhat. I had to negotiate a bit with my instructor because my teeth do not have the more common overbite, but rather have a more-or-less even bite (the top teeth are roughly even with the bottom teeth). It was impossible ...
  8. Happy New Year: David Thornton, Auld Lang Syne

    To say Happy New Year, here is a YouTube video featuring the excellent euphonium playing of David Thornton. He does the theme and variations version of Auld Lang Syne. This is a slide show with sound, not a live video. Enjoy!
