Product Details


This three-movement work for solo euphonium (or tuba) features "Tronad" (Mvt. 1), with constantly turning melodic lines interacting with brash and sometimes whimsical accompaniment. "In a Gentle Rain" (Mvt. 2) explores the beautiful sonorities of the euphonium in a serene environment, and "Hurricane" (Mvt. 3) opens with a powerful statement for both soloist and band, leading to a highly dramatic conclusion. The work includes solo parts for euphonium and tuba, and because the work is dedicated to and recorded by Roger Behrend, alternate solo parts are included with Mr. Behrend's dazzling technical facilities wonderfully demonstrated. This composition is a very important addition to the literature. Contains: MOVEMENT 1 (5:25) * MOVEMENT 2 (3:51) * MOVEMENT 3 (3:52). (Excerpt versions include solo and virtuoso versions of Mvt. 1, and solo, virtuoso, and tuba solo versions of Mvt. 3.). Available in the Alfred Rental Library. See www.alfred.com/rental and type "Willson" into the search field.
