* table of all works below
As part of my Ph.D. thesis 'The Emergence of Australian Solo Euphonium Repertoire', I created an annotated catalogue which provides a comprehensive guide to the Australian euphonium repertoire for performers and brass educators.
Previously there was no complete list of works with the majority of repertoire remaining unknown to both euphoniumists and educators. This collection, documentation, and critical assessment of Australian euphonium works provides an important reference for euphonium players, teachers, and for future researchers in Australian music.
The catalogue follows the format below with links to composers, publishers, recordings and YouTube videos where possible.
Composers Name: last name, first name.
Complete Title: as it appears on the music.
Publisher/Source: publisher details and website where available.
Instrumentation: including all accompaniment versions.
Date: copyright date for published works or date of composition for manuscript works.
Duration: expressed in minutes as indicated on the printed music or actual times.
Level: I - Beginner; II - Intermediate; III - High School; IV - University; V - Professional; Combinations of levels eg I-II, II-III etc.
* further details on level guidelines below.
Range: Range is given in both bass clef in C at concert pitch and in treble clef Bb transposed a major 9th as the euphonium is played in brass bands.
Movements: specific names and/or numbers.
Dedication/Commission: name of party to whom the composition is dedicated or commissioned by.
CD Recordings: when a particular composition has been recorded, reference will be made to the artist responsible for the recording.
YouTube: search entries and links where YouTube recordings are available.
Annotation: short, concise annotative comments concerning the general nature and style of the composition. Any outstanding technical problems or other pertinent information will be noted.
LEVEL I (Beginner): Limited range, approximately one octave: Bb2 to Bb3. One year of instruction. Limited rhythmic/technical requirements. No note value greater than quaver (eighth note), no syncopated rhythms. Music of a tonal nature.
LEVEL II (Intermediate): Two/three years of instruction. Range approximately G2 to Eb4. Rhythmic/technical requirements involve simple semi-quaver (sixteenth note) patterns. Simple, limited syncopated patterns.
LEVEL III (High School): Range approximately F2 to G4. Moderate tessitura. More rhythmic complexity. Extended syncopations, semi-quaver (sixteenth note) patterns, triplets, and so on. Limited use of double and triple tonguing.
LEVEL IV (University): Range approximately Bb1 to C5. Higher advanced tessitura. Increased rhythmic complexity/multimetric. Agular melodic lines. Dissonant harmonies/contemporary harmonies. Endurance factors. Introduction to avant-garde techniques (flutter tongue, multiphonics etc). Double and triple tonguing. Dynamic control and extremes.
LEVEL V (Professional): Total range: C1 to F5. Extended high tessitura. Rhythmic/technical complexity of highest order. Angular lines/large skips in melody. Advanced twentieth-century techniques. Extreme dynamic contrast.
Combinations: I-II, II-III, III-IV, IV-V.
N.B. These are general guidelines and recognised as quite subjective. Level indications describe attributes and requirements of the music more so than the expected skill of the player.
