Home on the Range (Erik Leidzen) Aaron VanderWeele, euphonium Accompanied by the New York Staff Band From the God and Country CD Available at www.nysb.org
One of the most demanding solos in The Salvation Army repertoire, Erik Leidzen wrote this magnificent work whose final variation was first deemed "unplayable" because it offers the soloist no chance for breath in the myriad of 16th note passages that drive to a fast & furious conclusion. The grand waltz that Leidzen uses to link the various sections of the works is a hallmark of his great writing.
