NEW - Baritone Solo!

  1. Appassionata

    By Richard Rock

    From the pen of Richard Rock comes a solo that should belong in every bands library. The Baritone has long been the most underated instrument of the Brass Band movement, but on hearing this work, all that could change. “Appassionata” is a simply gorgeous melodic work that can show off the Baritone instrument in a light not often seen. With the parts not too demanding either, this really is a must for all Baritone players.

  2. Play The Euph

    That sounds nice - I'm new, can this be played on euphonium ?
  3. Yes, both the Baritone and Euphonium are pitched in the same key (Bb) and so this solo could also work on a Euphonium.

    Easiest way to play for Euphonium and band is to swap the two Euph parts with the two bari parts for balance.

  9. Hehe, well the Euphonium players amongst us should take a look at...

    I Left My Heart In San Francisco
    By Cross & Reed

    This much loved ballad have been arranged as a Euphonium solo by Neville Buxton. Released by Tony Bennet, it became a gold-selling Top Ten hit that stayed in the charts almost three years. With intricate band parts and an unforgettable solo line, this arrangement will bring back the memories of the 60's to your concert audience.

    Hey Presto!
    by Gerry McColl

    This new gem of a solo for Euphonium is a rousing piece from start to finish. Starting with heavy syncopation from the band before the soloist can show off with this catchy little tune that you will be whistling for days (if you can whistle that fast!) The middle section then breaks into a beautiful legato tune for the soloist up in the top register, whilst the rest of the band keep on ploughing away underneath. The original tune then returns after a modulation and finishing with the soloist showing off their chromatic runs in the last couple of bars. This is one of the best new entertaining solos around.

    I realise it is ultimately down to your bandmaster, but there is no reason why it shouldn't be played these days, and many bands have used secular pieces to great effect.

    I thought that Salvation Army brass bands arent allowed to play secular pieces? (even though there all great!) thats what I heard anyways. Well, I should mention it to my bandmast then that I should play it! :cool:

    Half of the Salvation Army's 'original' music came from secular music (Music Halls).. To quote the founder "Why should the Devil have all the good music?!"

    Anyhow, long gone are the days when the Sally Army was so far up itself that they prevented this sort of thing (IMHO), not that it stopped many anyway.. ;)

    The rules were changed round about 1990, when Robert Redhead was head of the Music Department. This brought bands in line with songster brigades, who had been allowed to use other music for some time. At the same time, the restrictions on SA musicians playing and singing in other groups were relaxed, and SA music was (officially!!!) made available to all.
  14. Some SA music is some of the best around! I'm sure many people will agree that it was a great day when SA music was made available to "non-SA" bands.

    I agree there! just ask the Black Dyke band...they play ALOT of SA music.

    Yey!! Euphoniums have enough good music to play without nicking ours as well. Although Pearl Fishers does sound a hundred times better as a Baritone duet than a Euph duet!!!!
