  1. Why should the euphs have all the fun with Grandfather's Clock?
    Why should the cornets have all the fun with Carnival of Venice?

  3. Hi,
    I am also going to Australian Nationals but under under junior Baritone. A good place for solos, I've found, is trove. They have most of the Percy Code solos to download. https://trove.nla.gov.au/music/result?q=percy+code here is the link to where you can find more code solos.

    Philip Sparke wrote a solo, "Scaramouche," for baritone commissioned by Katrina Marzella. I bought the sheet music and read through it on euphonium a few times a few years ago. Never worked on it seriously, but played it enough to get a feel for it. I think it would be a really fine solo to work up (it's very Philip Spark, so if you like his other music, you'd probably like it). Sparke's notes on the piece are here:

    Oh wow, that young man can play! Good tone production with what looked like little effort to those watching. Looks like he played Carrickfergus as an encore, but as a duet with cornet.

    Carrickfergus (Stephen Roberts) would be a nice solo for baritone horn. That duet version is a bit different than what I’m familiar. Listen here:

    Yep, I thought the playing of Tobias looked completely effortless. At first I was almost thinking this was another Milli Vanilli (look it up) episode as he looked so completely at ease and virtually no movement around the chops. He either had an exceptional teacher(s) or this fellow is a born natural. I did a little more spelunking on YouTube and saw Tobias with three others playing in a euphonium quartet. Looks like there are lots of little, young euphonium players growing up around the world. That is a very good thing. Maybe before I am gone, regular people will know what a euphonium is and really come to appreciate this hands down best instrument in the world. I am slightly biased.

    The lady playing Carrickfergus above (Rick's post) was very good. Just warms the heart to hear so many good euphonium/baritone players.
