Euphontastic, world premieres

WASBE Conference 2019

Euphontastic is a piece written for Solo Euphonium and concert band and is dedicated to Steven Mead, an English virtuoso euphonium soloist and teacher who has played an important role in achieving worldwide recognition of the instrument: the euphonium. The derivative title ‘Euphontastic’, comes from the union of two very significant words to understand the meaning and character of the work: Euphonium+Fantastic. Through this union a true relationship is created between the great moments of virtuosity of the work, the maximum expressivity taken to the limit and the great majesty, all carried out by the great possibilities of this instrument.

The premiere of the work was made during the celebration of the World Conference of the WASBE 2019 (World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles), in Buñol (Valencia) and with the same Steven Mead as a soloist, accompanied by the Rovereto Wind Orchestra (IT) and under the direction of Maestro Andrea Loss. 

It is now presented worldwide with the best soloists of each country.
