Concertpiece by Philip Wilby is an exciting and demanding concert work, suitable for recitals, competitions and festivals. 

It was written in celebration of the life of David Thornton Snr. (1944-2008) who was the father of the famous euphonium soloist and teacher David Thornton.

In this version with brass band accompaniment it is an outstanding concert work with alternate virtuoso and lyrical sections, with lively rhythms, cross rhythms and syncopations requiring great agility and dexterity. Excellent control is also demanded in the soft high passages. All in all it's a quite outstanding composition, deserving to be more widely played.  

(theversion with piano accompaniment is also available on this site)
