Thread: Solo euph and Symphonic orchestra

    Solo euph and Symphonic orchestra

    As I have only been playing euph for 6 years and have limited knowledge on the Euphonium's repertoire (although I am very familiar with Phillip Sparke's work), I was wondering if there were any euphonium concertos that have symphonic orchestra accompaniment. I am competing in a competition through a college, and some of the requirements include that the solo of my choice must have a symphonic orchestra accompaniment, be under 15 minutes long, and be a concerto/aria (although I am allowed trim down any part I choose).

    Thanks for all the help!

    The Horovitz is the most famous but there are some others. David Child's recorded an album of them: https://www.chandos.net/products/catalogue/CHAN%2010830

    I recently played Ferdinand David's "Trombone Concertino". It has an orchestra accompaniment. It works really well for euphonium.

  5. If you choose the Horovitz, I believe that the orchestral accompaniment can only be rented, not purchased. The rental is through Novello but you may work with G. Schirmer here in the US. Information is here: http://www.musicsalesclassical.com/composer/work/903

    The direct contact for renting the orchestral part is:

    Some euphonium concertos with orchestra accompaniment include the Cosma, the Linkola, the Feinstein, the Horovitz and the Jansa Concerto Iberico. There are others but I can't remember them at the moment.

    Plenty of trombone concertos also come with it, the David, the Bourgeois, the Rimsky-Korsakov, etc. Also worth considering is the Mozart K191 Bassoon Concerto, I know many euph players have had success with that.
