Hi everyone! I wanted to tell you about another Clark Media production that is now available to the public! My fantastic euphonium colleague, Hiram Diaz, came to me in the spring with a great idea to make a new series of videos. Hiram, like many euphonium and trombone players, has been playing the 20 Counterparts duet series written by Tom Ervin, for many years. These are duets written to accompany the Bordogni/Rochut etudes that so many of us incorporate in to our daily practice. The videos include Hiram performing the duet part - the player utilizing the video provides the Bordogni etude. Hiram also has some excellent comments at the beginning of each video encompassing his performance practice and musical ideas about the piece. To purchase the original sheet music book, Counterparts, go to Tom Ervin's official website.
Here's my recordings of reference tracks for the 2016 TMEA All-State etudes... Virtual master classes to follow in the coming weeks!
