Chamber music, 20th century.

Webern's 'Two Pieces' for cello and piano, here arranged for euphonium and piano, are literally the earliest pieces we have by this composer, written when he was just 16 years old (the other nine works we have from this period are all songs with piano). Kathryn Bailey, the author of the New Grove's article on Webern, calls the harmonic language in these pieces awkward, but the transcriber here finds them surprising and refreshing. The chromaticism and concision of these pieces remind us of the mature Webern, while the melodic contours are extremely lyric.
