From the arranger:
None But the Lonely Heart was composed in 1869 as part of a set of Six Romances, Op. 6. Tchaikovsky used a text from a novel by Goethe to create this famous Romance. This piece has been set for nearly all instruments, so it was only natural to extend this gem to the realm of the euphonium. As is was originally a vocal work, a strong musical sound is required, as well as attention to phrasing and inflection, and a strong sense of musical expression. While it may not be a technical challenge, the performer should focus on pouring all their musicality into the performance in order to get the most out of this piece, particularly the operatic climax.
