Thread: Uff-Da Polka world premiere

    Uff-Da Polka world premiere

    Here's a link to a video of the first public performance of my original novelty piece for euphonium, the "Uff-Da Polka." I wish I could get a mulligan on the intro; maybe next time.

    Dagnabbit, what is it with this forum? Failure to paste and post again! I'll try typing it out letter by letter.

  4. The link works great. I just gave this a listen -- very nice execution of a quite technically demanding piece which I never heard before! Took some major cahunas to get up there at ITEC and deliver that one. My compliments and thanks for posting!

    Yeah, I did write it somewhat above my skill level. I actually had to tone it down; originally I had a cold key change so it would end on a high Db. But . . . not me, not this year :<P

    Found it on FB--big fun--and the oval WORKS for it. ;-)
    Can I get a copy? Autographed? With or without the D flat?
    Thanx!

    I have to do some rewriting: the first cadenza, the phrasing, the dynamics. I'll let you know, Jim
