    More Snorlax Live Euphonium

    As many of you know, the bottom part of my house was hit by a major flood about two and a half years ago...Though fully reconstructed, we are still putting things back together, discovering what was lost (and found).
    From time to time I discover some old performance recordings and other things I didn't know existed.

    I also like to acquaint Garritanites with the wonderful instrument we call the EUPHONIUM.

    If you click here you will hear a duet performed by Snor and his thoroughly wonderful standmate in the Indianapolis Brass Choir, Mary Miedema. It's light and entertaining, and gives you an idea of the sound of the euphonium.

    How to sort the two of us out? The edgy, bright, crass sound is me; I usually take the parts in the upper register (this only went up to high Db concert, for you brass players). The lovely, full, rich, refined sound is Mary.

    On this recording, I was playing a Willson 2905 euphonium with a Bach 2G mouthpiece. Mary plays a Hirsbrunner euphonium with a heavywall mouthpiece.

    I have been on the forum since shortly after the Crimean War (when it was the Orch-80 forum) and have taken it upon myself to acquaint the vast talent pool here with the KING of instruments, the euphonium.

    Feel free to snoop around the Indianapolis Brass Choir website as well. It's a good group with a mission.

    Euphonious wishes to you all...

    A Bach 2G and you're hitting high Db? I'm impressed. I used to use a Bach 6-1/2 AL and couldn't imagine using anything bigger.

    One of the most satisfying musical experiences for me was whipping out a Bach 3G and playing in the mid to low register. Pure euphoria...

    Thanks for sharing the music, I really miss playing euphonium and being a part of brass choirs. Dropping my performance major was one of the hardest decisions of my life, but it had to be done. I thought back then that I would always have time to keep my chops up, boy was I wrong. *sigh*

    Fantastic playing, really enjoyed the piece! Going to listen to more if there is more!

    I really enjoyed listening to this. Thanks for the link!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
