    Dimensions Peter Graham

    That's good news. I ran through it last rehearsal and the band liked it. Suits the strengths of our band. Last time I played it was at college in 87! Still got plenty to offer I reckon. Any time I've heard it since bands have tried to play it too fast IMO

    Let's treat him/her like the anonymous person he is...... people like him or her need to be ignored.

    Which Professional Euphonium 2015

    Totally agree Dave. Some of the new Euphs are just massive. My weapon of choice was always the "Pre Lottery grant" Besson Soveriegn 967 of late 80,s vintage. I played a York for a while and never really got on with it. It felt like I was a passenger rather than a player and got minimal feedback...

    Principal/Solo Euphonium players...

    Invest in a decent practice mute - they really help build up your sound IMO. A decent Euph player should be like a good tenor voice. I have always been of the opinion that your sound is what makes you stand out as a player. Technique is very important of course but if you don't sound great it...

    Replacement Silent Brass Cable help

    That 'wow' moment

    Steven Mead's Euph solo in Harmony Music 1987 at the Finals with Desford Unbelievable edge of seat, "hairs down back of neck" stuff. Flawed but brilliant at the same time Nothing has ever got close to that since

    Contest nerves

    Interesting reading so far- thanks :-) Personally I move around quite a bit when stood up at a concert which helps me relax. Would love to do that on the contest stage but would look a bit daft I guess :-) Maybe I should suggest revisiting "Revelation" for our next own choice piece .... or...

    Contest nerves

    OK so I left the Ballroom today with the usual feeling of "why did I feel like that playing such an easy piece?" To clarify - I have played, in the past Solo euph for decent top section bands with challenging cadenzas etc ( admittedly quite a few years ago) with a fair degree of success and...
