RECENTLY ADDED WORKS:

On November 11, Veteran’s Day, 2016, Edward Romine will be premiering Dr. Corwell’s most recent composition, Song for a New Day, for euphonium solo with piano. After the premiere, the piece will be available for purchase.

Several new arrangements have recently been completed, premiered, and made available for purchase. The most recent additions are
Ebben, Dance of the Tumblers, a Christmas Concerto, the Andante from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, the US National Anthem, Paganini’s Caprice No. 5, Clarke’s Carnival of Venice, Neal Corwell’s Adagio & Finale from Sinfonietta arranged for euphonium with marimba and piano, and the humorous Hey, Wait a Minute Waltz. Also added to this site, under “music listings” are some new categories to include “Encores” and a “Young Artist” list.

Come to the Edge, for solo euphonium with piano or orchestra, premiered January 2015, and is available for purchase with full orchestra, concert band, brass band, or piano accompaniment.

Other recently added pieces are piano-accompanied versions of Dr. Corwell’s arrangements of the guitar masterwork
Asturias by Albeniz, Mantia’s euphonium showpiece, Fantasia Originale, and Nutcracker Sweets, an arrangement of five movements from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Also new are versions of Quiet Mountain that now involve flute or clarinet in addition to trombone or tuba. Also new are a few arrangements with piano accompaniment: Away, I’m Bound Away, and March of the Marionette.

The Waste Land”, a new band piece, is ready for debut: Composition Projects have been high on Dr. Corwell’s priority list recently. In addition to finalizing master versions of several pieces in preparation for publication, and working on piano reductions of several works, he recently completed the score for a composition for symphonic wind ensemble. It is titled “The Waste Land”, and is an adaptation of his composition of the same name written for Stacey Baker in 1999 as a tuba solo with 4-part tuba-euphonium ensemble accompaniment. The inspiration for the music was the following line taken from the T.S. Eliot poem, The Wasteland: “The Wind Crosses the Brown Land, Unheard”. It is an exciting and challenging work which will hopefully be performed soon by several university wind ensembles across the nation.

As of January 2012, many pieces (over 30) that were previously published by Tuba-Euphonium Press have been withdrawn by Dr. Corwell from that organization. They are now all available from Nicolai Music. Check “
music listings” to find them. Several of Dr. Corwell’s arrangements that had been available from Kendor Music since the 1980s have recently gone out of print permanently. Those works will soon be available from Nicolai Music also.

A new piece for euphonium solo with band,
Ruslan and Ludmilla’s Romp Across Russia, was recently completed and premiered by Neal. It is a humorous and rambunctious presentation of several Russian orchestral favorites and includes famous themes by Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Glinka, and Rimsky-Korsakov.

LULLABYE, a new solo that is easy to play and designed to be performed by a variety of solo instruments, has recently been made available via Nicolai Music. This solo with piano accompaniment is accessible to players of many ability levels, and a wonderful new addition to the repertoire for euphonium, tuba and twelve other instruments! (flute, oboe, clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, bassoon, cello, tenor trombone, bass trombone, French horn, trumpet, and flugelhorn). To read more about the piece, and view a music sample, click here.

Also, Neal has begun adding music score samples of highlights of several pieces. A long way to go in this regard, but progress is being made.
