Sonatiny II “Old wine in new bottles” for euphonium and piano (2011)

This is the second piece I’ve called a “sonatiny,” which is meant have an even smaller scope than a sonatina. There are two sections, the first is a slow and crunchy chorale that turns into a hypnotic and static segment before a brusque and punchy fast section. The subtitle of this work “old wine in new bottles” reflects that much of the source material for this piece is stuff that I’ve used before (sometimes successfully, sometimes not) but it has been repackaged here for your consumption.
