A Euphonium Feature for Brass Band, and a good choice to showcase the talents of the bands Euphonium player, Babylon opens with a driving 3/4 time section led by trombones and percussion.
The Euphonium solo begins with a flowing quaver melody which is rhythmically supported by the entire band, and builds until a change of pace.
Moving into a slower 4/4 time section to show the lyrical quality of the Euphonium.
This slower middle section continues to build encompassing the whole band, until the soloist takes over and brings us back to the opening 3/4 time again, gaining pace for a furious climax.
A lively solo feature with a band accompaniment which is not too demanding.
Percussion parts (3):
2. Drum Kit
3.Tambourine, Glockenspiel, Sus Cymbal and Mark Tree
