Thread: Solo Piece

  1. Solo Piece

    Iím a decent high school freshman looking for a nice euphonium solo to play for our recital coming up, any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum!

    What is your taste? Would you like something dramatic, slow and pretty, theme & variations, original euphonium music, or...?

    We're lucky that there are lots of good choices today!

  3. Preferably something slow and pretty, I don’t really care for the theme and variation style but am open for options.

    You might look at Paul Droste's nice arrangement of Schumann's Five Pieces in Folk Style. There are a couple of nice slow movements, and you could pair one of those with the 4th or 5th movements for a more lively finish. It's very nice music!

    Another idea is this John Philip Sousa parlor piece, originally for violin. Slow and pretty.

    Here is my recording of this piece:
