This is undoubtedly one of the modern classics in the euphonium solo repertoire. It has been used in many recitals, auditions and competitions over the last 30 years or so, since it was first performed in January 1991. Here at the Euphoniumstore we are offering this now for the very first time! It's beautifully produced in the USA by C.Alan Publications and as well as the piano part, we offer the solo part in both treble and bass clef. 

Vintage combines Gillingham's intimate knowledge of how to write effectively for the instrument. This composition features wonderful soaring lines in the euphonium (ascending up to the high C's, and higher in an optional element of the cadenza) while at the same time mixing in a jaunty and highly rhythmic 5/4 section. All the technical aspects of the piece, while challenging, are well thought out and effective for performer and audience.

Vintage was premiered on January 18, 1991 at the Midwestern School Band and Orchestra Conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan by the Big Rapids High School Band with Ed Mallet as euphonium soloist.

Highly recommend, if You are an advanced player, or very enthusiastic and ambitious amateur!
