Description

This exciting concerto by young composer Pete Meechan is an important new addition to the euphonium repertoire.  It was written at the request of David Thornton and the Black Dyke Band, and composed between June and August 2003.  The first performance was given on 8th November of the same year at St. Botolphs Church, Boston, Lincs.  The euphonium soloist, David Thornton, was accompanied by the Black Dyke Band, under the baton of Dr. Philip Wilby.

The concerto lasts approximately 15-16 minutes, and is divided into three movements I - Hubris: The House of Atreus, II - Discardation: Lament for Aerope and III - New Order: Flight to Sparta.  The original version of the concerto with brass band accompaniment is also available from Prima Vista Musikk.
