From Tempe, Arizona, in 1996. This was my last guest performance ("on the road") as a Coast Guard musician, playing Roger Kellaway's Morning Song. This piece makes a fine euphonium solo, even though it was originally written for tuba player Roger Bobo. The range is from a low E-flat to a high B-flat. The low E-flats (2 of them) are just passing notes, and could even be left out if someone tried to play this on a 3-valve euphonium. However, I suspect anyone who has the ability to play the solo will own a 4-valve horn. The piano part is very difficult, but offers a great chance for the pianist to shine.
