  1. Minnesota All-State Audition - Example and Tips - Video

    I've been asked to do a new project this year. Brian C. Wilson of iplayeuphonium.com is working to obtain recorded examples of the all-state audition pieces for all 50 U.S. states. I am doing the example for Minnesota.

    In this state a composer writes a special etude each year, which is one way to make sure there is an even playing field (i.e. the chosen piece is not one that anyone happened to have played in a lesson last year or something). Composer Timothy Mahr includes quite a lot ...
  2. Video: Bill from Showboat - Broadway Music on Euphonium

    Here is my newest video. It's my second song from Showboat (the first was "Old Man River") and it's simply titled "Bill." It's a pretty love song that I liked the first time I heard it. In this case I'm playing it pretty straight - no ornamentation to speak of.

    The sheet music is available for download here:

  3. On Wings of Song - Euphonium Video

    This is my newest video: On Wings of Song ("Auf Flugeln des Gesanges") by Felix Mendelssohn, arranged by me. I did the arrangement years ago but I never got around to programming it anywhere that was recording the event... until now.

    It's a great song that I have always liked in its original form, and it seems like a natural for euphonium. It's fun to play and does not require any advanced technique. Thus it is a great learning tool for musical interpretation. You can easily find recordings ...
  4. Video: Bless This House - Euphonium Duet

    Here is my newest video. Tim Morris and I are playing a duet, my arrangement of "Bless This House." This is from a rehearsal for a church service where the piece became the offertory. Tim is playing the first part, although I wrote the duet so both players have a chance for some of the melody. The recording is a little hampered by the bell angles; Tim is pointing much more toward the mic and I am pointing about 90 degrees from the mic, but the effect is still mostly there. See what you think! ...
  5. Video: Holy Holy Holy, arr. by Philip Sparke - Dave Werden, Euphonium

    Here is a video of a special arrangement of John Dykes' famous hymn "Holy Holy Holy" that we did for church on Sept. 14. This is from Philip Sparke's wonderful book of hymns set in special arrangements. This one is at the end of the book and is the hardest, but it is still not beyond most decent players. Range only goes up to a concert G and no multiple tonguing is required (although it can be used to "spark" thinks up a bit). There are two publications:

    Solo part and accompaniment ...

  8. Euphonium Duet Video - Flower Song - Tim Morris and Dave Werden

    Tim Morris and Dave Werden, euphoniums, and Sara Brunk, piano, performing a duet originally written for sopranos. The duet is from Lakme, by Delibes, arranged for euphoniums and piano by Adam Frey. Tim is playing the first euphonium part.



    Sorry about the lighting, but the sun came around during the recording. Tim and I are not quite so exposed, but poor Sara got really blasted with light.
