Instrumentation: Quintet Instruments: Euphonium, Tuba
Espérer (Hope) was composed of three Euphoniums and two Tubas and is an ABA form. Section A consists of two themes: The first theme is played smoothly with a constant rhythm to express the spirit of the title “Hope” and the second theme is sung with a more relaxed melody line. The B section, which is more lyrical, allows the Euphonium parts to soar over the ensemble as they lead to the the return to the A section and the piece’s climactic conclusion.
