Here is a brand-new solo that is set to become a great target for all ambitious and advanced euphonium players.

Stan Nieuwenhuis' Move There Mind was commissioned by Glenn Van Looy. For his first solo album he was looking for new interesting euphonium solos written by young composers, to expand the existing repertoire. Move There Mind became the title track of Glenn's first CD, that he recorded with the Gunnedah Shire Band in Australia in 2011.

Move There Mind symbolises the quest for a new sound and style for the euphonium. It's a challenging piece that consists of 3 parts. A furious opening pushes the soloist to the limit of range and speed. The dramatic introduction mellows into the slow melancholic 2nd movement. Despite the calmness there is unease to be heard through grace notes and fast runs. As earlier movements move from one to another without a break with the theme of the final movement gradually introduced through wide intervals, and multi-phonics in the lower range at high speed. We hear the theme disguised in various forms before leading to a dramatic climax. This is followed by a return of the theme before the music rushes to a chaotic finale.

This solo is available with brass band accompaniment (here), and also with piano accompaniment (to be found elsewhere on this site).

Solo parts are supplied in: treble clef Bb, bass clef in C, bass clef in Bb
