Just found this on YouTube. It's a nice piece for 2 altos, 2 baritone horns, and 2 euphoniums (plus one extra euphonium in the middle??) by Cedric Rossero. It's a great demonstration of the different timbres of these instruments. It appears to be from the Paris Conservatory.
Now that the Summer is closing, it will soon be time to hear who is the 2007 Euphonium Player of the Year. There are other posts on this blog about the event, but I thought I would provide a bit more insight based on my own experience from 1980.
When I learned of the award, the Coast Guard agreed to pay my expenses to travel and accept the award in London. While there, I took a few days' leave on my own expense and toured London - what a great city and people!
YouTube has a nice video of the Canadian Brass Quintet playing a Purcell piece. While it doesn't really feature the tuba, you can plainly see the black bell in the video. You may be able to hear enough of the tuba to judge for yourself how the sound holds up.

This is a great routine by the always-entertaining Canadian Brass Quintet. Charles Daellenbach is featured and here is a fantastic demonstration how a great player can perform under challenging circumstances. For those of us who think we need a chair that is just the right height and a way to always have the horn supported at just the right angle, watch this:
On Youtube there is a short video of the Empire Brass Quintet performing live. It features Ken Amos doing a wonderful job on the tuba solo. Very clean technique and fine double tonguing. (Lots of enthusiasm from the audience, so don't be too distracted.)
