Jeremy Smith’s Sonata for Euphonium and piano is a three movement work with movements titled Busyness, Meditation, and Service. Busyness represents the busyness of life, how there’s always something to do. It features both happy, harmonious sections and chaotic, dissonant sections. Meditation represents the calm after the “crash and burn” from the busyness of life. The final movement depicts a newly energized person recharged after the meditation, and is portrayed through popular music motives.
solo parts included: Euphonium TC/BC
