Papa Can You Hear Me? - New YouTube Upload

Rate this Entry
At the 2008 ITEC, I had the pleasure of performing a solo recital along with one of my favorite pianists, Barbara Young. I just uploaded a song from that event, my rendition of Barbra Streisad's song "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" from the movie "Yentl." It's a very "thoughtful" song, as the plot has the singer talking to her deceased father through the music.

This is the type of song I encourage students to program. First, it can add a nice change of pace for the recital. It also gives the student a chance to learn from trying imitate professional singers, who have a different sense of performance than typical brass players. Emulating their style is a terrific to make your interpretations more flexible.

You can find this on my Euphonium Videos page:
