Joe Broom, Euphonium – Davidson Fellow

WILLIAMS | Suite from Star Wars
COSMA | Concerto for Euphonium and Orchestra
HOLST | The Planets, op. 32

TAKE NOTE…

  • “The Imperial Death March” within John Williams’ Suite from Star Wars was influenced by Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 2 (nicknamed the Funeral March) and Holst’s The Planets, specifically the movement “Mars, the Bringer of War.”
  • The euphonium (which will be played by guest artist Joe Broom) is a part of the brass family of instruments. It is occasionally confused with the baritone horn. The instrument is more common in bands than orchestras, but it is featured in Richard Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben and Holst’s The Planets.
  • Holst played trombone as he was unable to support himself by composition alone. He played under the baton of Strauss in 1897.
  • Composer Ralph Vaughan Williams was one of Holst’s best friends. The two served as important critics of each other’s works throughout life.
