  6. Concerto for Euphonium

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Solo and Wind Band Instruments: Euphonium
    With Concert Band; The "Concerto for Euphonium" was written to celebrate the music prowess and unmistakable artistry of Dr. Demondrae Thurman. Each of the four movements is a tribute to him in a different way. In the first, the virtuostic potential of the euphonium is on display through the assymetric meter, extensive range demands and dual cadenzas. In the second, you can literally hear Demondrae singing his children to sleep with two French-Candadian lullabies. In the third, listen to his moving and beautiful rendition of his favorite spiritual, "Deep River." In the final movement, the joy of music and life explode into a triumphant, up-tempo setting of "Deep River." Bring your high chops, because this movement launches into the stratosphere! Learn More

  9. Fort Worth Funk

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Quartet Instruments: Alto Sax, Baritone Sax, Soprano Sax, Tenor Sax
    Genre: Contemporary

    SATB:

    Fort Worth Funk was written to provide a light-hearted, engaging selection for Saxophone Quartet.  It begins with a dramatic statement from the Baritone Saxophone, who lays down the opening groove.  The other members of the quartet enter one at a time, while the composition builds to a virtuostic moment for the full quartet.  The staggered entrances also provide an opportunity to stage theatrics as well.  Appropriate rhythms and articulations are meticulously notated to help players achieve an authentic “funk” style in their performance.  The piece is loosely based on the chord changes to the jazz standard “Well You Needn’t”, which appears briefly in swing style at the end of the piece.  Chord changes and written solos are provided during the improvised sections, to bring the piece within the grasp of a wide spectrum of players.

  12. Musings on Mahler

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Solo and Piano Instruments: Piano, Trumpet
    Genre: Contemporary

    with Piano; 3 movements; Cornet, Flugelhorn and Piccolo preferred

    One of Mahler's favorite books was collection of German folk poetry entitle Das Knaben Wunderhorn.  He set a number of these poems to music for solo voice and piano, which he later scored for orchestra.  Inspired by these poems, he wrote his own poetry which formed the lyrics of "Songs of a Wayfarer", which he also set to music.  These two song cycles have become some of his most beloved compositions, and among his most frequently performed works.  This setting for trumpet and piano, soon to be scored for trumpet and band, captures the whimsical nature of German folk song, although the themes are original by Mahler.  The composer later incorporated some of these melodies into his orchestral works.  At the request of Dr. Mark Ponzo, my colleague from Northern Illinois University, I selected three leider from these two song cycles to be scored for trumpet.  As I reflected upon the beautiful melodies, I was inspired to utilize both the lyrical and technical nature of the trumpet to convey Mahler's ideas, while expanding upon them as well.

  17. Suite Tuba

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Solo and Brass band Instruments: Tuba
    with Brass Band; Suite Tuba is dedicated to Sam Pilafian, the tuba player and founding member of the Empire Brass Quintet. The four movement composition represents one of the most substantial works for solo tuba and concert band in the last decade. This work was written by a tuba player for tuba players. Each movement represents the musical character of the tuba in a different light. The first movement juxtaposes the rhythmic complexity of shifting asymetric meters with a conga-supported fusion jazz melody. The second movement offers the soloist a chance to improvise and take the melodic lead on the Dixieland classic tune That's a Plenty. The third movement, Lullaby, allows the melodic character of the tuba to take center stage. The fourth movement weaves themes from the previous three movements into original material to bring the composition to a stirring climax. Learn More

    Instrumentation: Solo and Wind Band Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary

    This version of Suite Tuba is for Tuba and Wind Ensemble. There is also a Tuba and Piano reduction version available.

    Suite Tuba
    was written in honor of my doctoral advisor and applied instructor from Arizona State University, J. Samuel Pilafian. Although Sam is best known in the brass world for his ground-breaking performances as the tuba player and founding member of the Empire Brass Quintet, he was also the primary arranger and business manager for Empire for nearly 20 years. He is also an incredible teacher, who has trained thousands of musicians around the world. Sam had a profound impact on my career in all four areas, that is, as a player, a composer and arranger, entrepreneur and teacher. This composition is designed to reflect different elements of training and studying with Sam.

  20. Tribute Duets

    Composer: Bough, Thomas
    Instrumentation: Duet Instruments: Tuba
    Genre: Contemporary
    This duet set is indeed a tribute, in so many ways. First, to Dr.’s Danielle Van Tuinen and Jeffrey Malecki, among many, who helped sponsor the composition. Second, to my friend of many years, my host for the Missouri State Low Brass Day, and a fine euphonium player, Dr. Jennifer Jester. The music was composed for us to premiere at the MSU Low Brass Day on March 29, 2020 in Springfield, Missouri. The first movement draws on thematic elements from the rock tune “Tom Sawyer”, performed by the Canadian rock trio known as “Rush.” Their drum set player and lyricist Neil Peart passed away in early 2020, about the time I was writing this music. I can still remember hearing this song, the opening track from their album “Moving Pictures” when I was in high school. The relentless groove that Neil laid down on this album, and so many other albums from this band, had a profound impact on my understanding of pulse, time, and musical flow. The second movement is a tribute to Sam Pilafian, my tuba professor (and Jennifer’s) at Arizona State University. This music draws on some of the fundamental grooves from latin music, such as the 2-3 clave, the piano montuno, and the bass figures that accompany these two ideas. So many musicians were influenced by Sam, in so many ways, that I can only attempt to describe how much he meant to me, both personally and professionally. Learn More
