Legend of a big friendly giant - euph. acc. wind band

At night The Big Friendly Giant catches dreams and nightmares in jars. Playing on his ´big trumpet´, he gives the beautiful dreams back to the sleeping children and he keeps the nightmares with him.


The compositian ´The legend of a big friendly giant´ is all about this ´big trumpet´, in this case the euphonium. The euphonium doesn´t need special effects. All his lyrical and technical capacities are used in function of creating beautiful musical dreams. As in a classical concerto, the soloist combats with the orchestra. At first they are playing alternately, afterwords they play fraternal together.


This work was created in Torrent (Spain) and dedicated to Steven Mead and Frank De Vuyst.
