    Challenging new euphonium duet !

    I have to say, in my opinion it looks and sound more like a piano concerto!!!!!!! The piano player is gonna be worked hard. The only duet playing is in the last movement so I wouldnt really class it as a duet. I'm not a euph player, but I think it is awful. Sorry!

    Challenging Test Piece for good 3rd Section Band wanted.

    A piece that is a great one to play and is a good test for 2nd section bands is Capriccio by Kenneth Downie. Played it in the 2nd section finals in 1998 at Harrogate and came 3rd. Is a great piece. It will certainly give most bands a stretching!
