Arrangement for euphonium and concert band also available (HL44003222). Adapted by the composer from his clarinet concerto, Euphonium Concerto No. 2 was written for the virtuoso soloist Steven Mead. The opening movement contains much syncopation and is almost a ragtime in style. The slower second movement initially explores the unsurpassable ability of the euphonium to play lyrically, playing a theme that will be taken up later by the band while the soloist weaves a filigree descant. This leads directly into the third movement, which is almost bebop in style and shows off the jazzier capabilities of the euphonium.
