My initial inspiration for arranging came from my desire to perform music that I love that wasn't written for euphonium - much of it comes from my days as a violinist and the repertoire I either performed or heard during that time. I've been arranging sporadically ever since - the violin concerto arrangement dates back to my sophomore year of high school (I've revisited it and touched it up, of course)!
The main venues I've had for arranging have been my own solo playing, euphonium-tuba quartet, and BlueLine Brass Band. Unfortunately, all of the material I've arranged for performance with BlueLine is still under copyright, being pop tunes and all. The rest are listed below for sale - thanks in advance for taking a look!
Euphonium-Tuba (EETT) Quartets
- Prelude & Fugue #4 in E minor, Op. 87 by Dmitri Shostakovich
- From Shostakovich's homage to Bach, 24 Preludes & Fugues
- String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96 ("The American") - I. Allegro ma non troppo by Antonin Dvořák
- Really difficult, with dexterity needed in extreme registers, but the beautiful melodies make it worth it
- Oleology (taken from Oleo by Sonny Rollins and Anthropology by Charlie Parker & Dizzy Gillespie)
- A no-frills mashup of Oleo and Anthropology - intro, head, solos, shout, head, outro sequence
- Sports et Divertissements by Erik Satie
- Classic sarcastic Satie, 21 short vignettes gives a lot of flexibility in programming, optional narrator (that makes it really unique!)
- Kinderszenen, op. 15 by Robert Schumann
- Just really well-written Romantic music, Traumerei (Dreaming) is a highlight
- Preview of selected movements:
Euphonium and Piano
- Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor by Jean-Baptiste Accolay
- A concerto that every student violinist works on at some point, incredibly difficult (but fun!) on euphonium
Works in progress
- Zigeunerweisen (Gypsy Airs), op. 20 by Pablo de Sarasate
- This arrangement differs from the others currently available for euphonium in that it's in the original violin key and isn't truncated in any way, so it can easily be performed with orchestra.
- This arrangement is actually done, but it's currently in written form on paper - I just need to enter it and the piano part into Sibelius to complete it. Bug me to do this if you want - Stanford PhD life can get pretty busy, but motivation is always helpful!
