Written for and commissioned by Jason Ham, Principal Euphonium with the US Military Academy Band at West Point (USA). I wanted to write something technically challenging yet had sections of expressiveness. Since the euphonium is such a versatile instrument in regard to both technique and expressiveness I found myself writing this piece rather quickly. I will admit that while composing the piece I thought of the composer Bartok. Not only because I have always been attracted to his music but for the fact that Jason Ham was to premiere the work in Hungary. So I must admit to this bit of influence throughout. Concert Piece No. 1 is also a work were both instruments (euphonium and piano) each share an equal part.
Joseph Turrin, Nov. 2010, Clifton, USA

The Concert Piece No. 1 was first recorded by Steven Mead and was recently selected as the first round piece for ITEC2012 in Linz, Austria.
