Additional Info

Euphonium Magic is the title of a  recording that is a completely multi-tracked album where Steve plays every single note on the one hour recording. In pieces ranging from 4 to 17 parts, it is an amazing technical and musical feat to produce such a disc where everything from Gabrieli to jazz is covered, including four substantial works, Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice (the inspiration behind the title), Wagner’s famous ‘Ride of the Valkyries’, the complete Scherzo from Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and J.S. Bach’s famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Schumann complete the classical side and there are three jazz and swing pieces to round the disc including a rip-roaring version of Louis Prima’s Jump Jive an’Wail.

Those who have heard pre-production versions of the disc are frankly astonished by the results! The sound quality is amazing, warm rich euphonium tones combining in perfect rhythmic precision and astonishingly perfect intonation throughout. Steve’s only regret is that this particular euphonium ensemble/orchestra can never play live…at least, not all at the same time!! But when you listen to the great music on Euphonium Magic you can cast this regret away, and listen in wonder as to how the hell this was ever done. Some secrets will come out, but as the title suggests, some it will remain, like all good magic, a secret.
