Dave Werden Playing Beauty and the Beast (Euphonium and Piano)

Rate this Entry
During my Feb. 10, 2013 recital at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, I wanted to introduce a change of pace from standard literature. Ever since I saw the movie "Beauty and the Beast" I have been a big fan of the title song, and also taken by Angela Lansbury's performance. It was late in Ms. Lansbury's career and her voice had a relaxed, but authoritative, quality. She was singing in the most natural part of her range, which was somewhat low. It seemed a perfect fit for presentation on euphonium, and also a way to let the audience relax a bit.

With me on piano is Barbara Young, and turning pages is her husband, tubist Jerry Young.

    "I wanted to introduce a change of pace from standard literature".

    I have been playing Euphonium for 29 years and have never played a standard literature piece.
    My repertoire is that which was played by "The Six Fat Dutchman". I just love the New Ulm sound.

    I enjoyed your "Beauty and the Beast" very much.
