September Feature for Brassband
Concertino for Euphonium
Music by: Hendrik de Boer
Published by: Lake Music Publications
Concertino for Euphonium is a unique three-movement solo work (fast-slow-fast) composition from the pen of talented composer, Hendrik de Boer.
The opening movement excitedly launches straight into full flow, with reference to the score, a 'wild' euphonium phrase, accompanied by cross-rythms from the ensemble at a fast tempo of 144 bpm (it's difficult to not be hit back in awe and suprise). With many changes to key, texture and mood, the first section tactfully entices the audience.
The middle movement shows off the lyrical side to the euphonium, with expressive melodies and heart-warming accompaniment from the ensemble, whilst the third movement is a real tour-de-force displaying the versatility of the instrument and range, as well as relating back to material from previous movements.
Finely crafted and masterfully orchestrated, this composition for euphonium and band is sure to be popular amongst soloists who wish to showcase their virtuosity.
