This work was written especially for and is dedicated to Brian Bowman.
It is a composition in three movements which I have titled Partita rather than Sonata because the movements are sectional and none of them is in sonata-allegro form.
The first movement is a Toccata and, as the name suggests, allows some technical display by both instruments. The Pastorale is in a more relaxed mood and allows the euphonium a chance to sing. The final movement is a very rhythmic dance.
This work is available from: Boosey & Hawkes.
Partita has been recorded by Brian Bowman, euphonium soloist on Crystal Records: S-393.
For archival quality scans of scores and parts, or lossless audio recordings please contact the composer.
