Life Of A Dream

Concerto for Euphonium with Piano Accompaniment

$30.00AUD

With Additional Piano Accompaniment CD

$37.50AUD

Listen to an extract of Michael Howley’s performance

This was originally written for one of my lifelong friends, Jim Sloan, as a piece to perform on his final recital in order to obtain his university degree in music. The Three Movements are entitled 1) Ignorant Intelligence 2) Weary Contentment and 3) Cosmic Culmination. Though the titles are a bit on the humorous side, a bit of inner thought and imagination could bring them to a more serious conclusion. However, the piece sat for many years until Michael Howley, then of the Brighouse & Rastrick Band in U.K., visited Adelaide to play with the K&N Band at the National Comps (2006). He asked if I would composed a piece for his first solo album. I sent him this piece and told him that if he didn’t like it, I would write him a new one. If he did like it, I would score it for Brass Band accompaniment. He liked it and thusly recorded it in 2008 as his main piece on his album “The Life of a Dream”, which I thought was a very appropriate title. You can probably find Michael’s album through our “Links” page to Brass World.

Though the “sound bite” is from Michael’s CD this version is with Solo part and Piano Accompaniment. A good piano playing accompanist is advised.


Sonata for Trombone and Piano

Composed by Bruce Broughton

$30.00AUD

With Additional Piano Accompaniment CD

$37.50AUD

Listen to an extract from “Eclectica”

This piece was written many many years ago when Bruce and I were young lads, even before we went into the music business together. If I remember correctly he wrote the third movement first as a solo and completed it as a Sonata when he was getting his degree in composition from University of Southern California. It’s always been one of my favorites and finally, after 40 years of waiting, I recorded it on my Eclectica CD. It’s demanding, even today, yet lots of fun to play. It’s high energy and you need an especially good piano player because it is for piano and trombone. Three movements that will challenge your technique, sound, range and musical interpretation and expression.


KJ Concerto

For Cornet and Piano Accompaniment

$30.00AUD

Originally written for Kevin Joughins, the solo cornetist for the K&N Spring Gulley Brass Band in Adelaide, South Australia. This solo has been used in the Open Competition for Cornet for the New Zealand National Competitions. Three movements with lots of technique, tone, style and range. Demands a good piano accompanist as well.


Trilogy for Flugel

Flugel Horn solo with Piano accompaniment.

$30.00

Listen to a VST extract

Trilogy was used as the Open Competition Flugel piece at the 2006 and 2013 Australian National Band Competitions. It was originally written for Rob Kavanaugh (with the then K&N Band, Adelaide) as his piece to perform in the prestigious Ern Keller Soloist Competition in Australia (2002). Three movements, Life, Love, Joy with challenging technique, tone and interpretation. Fun to play and fun to listen to, so I’m told.

Originally written with piano accompaniment and has been re-arranged for Eb Tenor (Alto) Horn with Piano accompaniment as well. In the Shopping Cart under Special Requests etc. just request the Eb Tenor (Alto) Horn version.

In Publications Brass Bands you will find a version with Brass Band accompaniment for the Flugel Horn version.


A Fantasy On “Waltzing Matilda”

Written for Saxophone Quartet and Piano

$30.00AUD

Listen to a VST extract

This was a commission by Brisbane State High School, Queensland, Australia for the quartet’s trip to China. Mr. Bradley Ruben was the Leader. Fun piece, at least Grade 4 for the players. Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Baritone Sax and Piano. Has some technical stuff not heard in the extract but I understand it was fun to play and represented Australia well.
