So recently I've been listening to my American Variations CD (E. Corporon and the CCCM)...

1. Dr. Brian Bowman is God. :bow: (Well, okay, no he isn't, but it's a close enough substitute if you're a euphonium player.)

2. Listening to a euphonium take on the solo in Herbert Clarke's Carnival of Venice is enough to make me wet my pants. Almost.

3. Edwin Franko Goldman's Scherzo is an outstanding piece. And the euphonium is prefectly suited to that gorgeous melody in the slower, lyrical section.

4. Every low brass player should own this CD.

As you were. ;)

If you like the American Variations CD, you'll probably also love the "Golden Age of Brass, Volume 3 with Michael Colburn. Michael was the Euphonium Soloist with the President's own Marine Band, and is now the assistant conductor.

If you can find some old recordings of Simone Mantia and Art Lehman, they're
definitely worth a listen.

If you like Carnival of Venice, try to find a recording of Michael Lind playing it on the Tuba.

Gene Pokorny solo Tuba recordings are also required listening for any low brass player.

Philip Wilby's piece "Concerto for Euphonium" is amazing. Had a chance to hear it at the 1999 WASBE Conference in San Luis Obispo. Euphonium soloist was Robert Childs from the Boosey & Hawkes corporation, accompanied by the California State University Intercollegiate Wind Orchestra.

First heard Bowman on LP when he was in the US Navy Band.

Heard him live in 76 when he was solo euph in the US Armed Forces Bicentennial Band. He did Sherzo by Goldman and The Volunteer by Walter Rogers..which I later did on my senior recital on Euph at CSU Long Beach.

Then heard him again when he was in the US Air Force Band.

The Child's brothers are amazing too. I kinda like the english euph players tone better.

Probably the most amazing technical euph player was Art Lehman who was soloist in the US Marine Band for like 20+ years (thru the 50's and 60's).
Have a couple LP's of his that are beyond belief. One cool thing on it is his "warmup peice", the "Bear went over the Mountain" written in 5 octaves!

He also does all the usual trumpet/euph killers (ie The Volunteer, Carnival of Venice, Devil's Tongue, etc, etc.)

I think Art Lehman's "The Art of Euphonium Playing" is still available
through the TubaEuphonium Press (http://www.tubaeuphoniumpress.com).

The 2nd volume comes with an LP.

I haven't ordered it as I don't have access to a turntable anymore. You can hear Art's work on some of the Marine Band CD's available through your local library.

Lehman had a HUGE sound.

Phantom, I finally got the ambition to go out and buy the CD myself. I am currently waiting for it to come in. It cost me 16 bucks, and I am ordering through Borders, the book store. I can not wait for it to come in. Thank you for the recomendation, being that I am a Euphonium player, I can not wait for it to come in.

You won't regret it. The CD also has some great band pieces on it, like Ticheli's "Amazing Grace" and Bennett's "Suite of Old American Dances."

No, I can't say I've heard it.

Well Phantom, my American Variations CD came in, and...IT IS FRIGGIN' AWSOME!! I love it. That version of Brian Bowman playing Carnival of Venice is simply amazing. Well, there are other great pieces on there, such as American Salute, and Ticheli's Amazing Grace, but Venice, is...well...umm...just plain amazing. There is no other way to describe it.[/quote]

E.F. Goldman's "Scherzo" is probably my favorite on the whole CD. Great technical work, and he makes that lush, beautiful trio melody just soar.
