Instrumentation: Solo Instruments: Euphonium

For unaccompanied euphonium and in four movements, “Paracosms” highlights the many abilities of the euphonium, from the lyrical and technical, to the generally under-explored low register. I chose the title, which refers to a detailed and consistent imaginary world explored over a period of time in one’s mind, to give each movement a somewhat programmatic context, with the exception of the first movement (which is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek jab). In doing so I hoped to create a work that would provide interest for the listener as well as the performer, where many unaccompanied pieces tend to stray into “weird” aural territories. The result is a challenging and diverse work.
