Bel Canto Studies for Euphonium with Piano composed by Various. Arranged by Ralph Sauer. For Euphonium and Piano. Italian vocal arias. Intermediate. Solo part and piano score. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2527).
Ralph Sauer has beautifully edited 13 Bel Canto studies for Euphonium by three Italian operatic masters: Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti. These studies are the in the style of vocalises, (having no words) and can be performed unaccompanied, or with their original accompaniments.
The Bel Canto studies which are in bass clef, are from the same era as the famous Bordogni studies and can be used by intermediate performers.
These 13 works are a wonderful addition to the Euphonium repertoire and can be performed on recitals, auditions and juries.
