Follies and Anomalies

Follies and Anomalies was originally composed in 2020 for Euphonium Quintet.

Duration: c. 5 minutes.

This piece aims to explore the extremes possible on the euphonium through experimentation in techniques, tone colour and expression. The theme of extremes and experimentation is reflected in the title, with 'anomalies' meaning a deviation from the norm and expectation, and 'follies' adding a sense of whimsy and foolishness.

This piece aims to spotlight the versatility and quality of the euphonium, which is often an under-utilised instrument. Being a euphonium player, I wanted to demonstrate the many different tone colours and effects that can be achieved through the extremes and experimentation, as well as the beautiful tone of the instrument, shown in the more tonal and chordal sections of the piece.
