Tambourin by Jean-Marie Leclair
My music mentor, a retired but still top-notch trombone player gave me Leclair's "Tambourin" last week, an 18th century piece originally for violin and piano but now transcripted for euphonium and piano. As my music buddy loves to provide me with new challenges every now and then, he told me with a big grin on his face that 'these Baroque notes would keep me busy for quite some time'.
At a first glance, I found it a nice warming up for say, Grandfather's Clock and Carnival of Venice. Yes it had some intervals that were so large that their names were not in my active vocabulary, but overall it was a doable piece of art I thought... until I heard it in real time (150 bpm!). Now I realize that my friend's 'quite some time' needs to be measured in months, not in weeks.
But taking his challenge, I do like to master this piece and play it at a reasonable tempo. However, so far I only heard it played by a violin and an artificial keyboard-euphonium.
Could somebody on this forum maybe provide me with an internet-link where I can listen to it played by a brasswind instrument, preferably a euphonium? This would for sure be a big help to me.
