Majestic Journey - Original Works for Euphonium and
Orchestra Naxos 8.570538


Composer: Vladimir Cosma, John Golland, Peter Graham, Kevin Kaska,
Philip Sparke

Arranger: Adam Frey

Conductor: Bruce Hangen

Orchestra: New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Artist: Adam Frey


The euphonium has a relatively rare place in the symphony orchestra, but has
assumed an important rôle in wind and brass bands. It is an instrument capable
of amazing agility, as revealed in the present recording of original
compositions that feature the instrument. These reveal something of the
potentiality of this member of the brass family, capable of graceful lyricism
and of brilliant panache.

Majestic Journey - Original Works for Euphonium and
Orchestra Review

In the euphonium world (granted, a small one), Adam Frey is the man of
the moment. He has released several outstanding albums in quick succession
(March/April 2008: 234), in the process introducing a number of new works. While
not all of the literature is of the highest quality, some of it is excellent,
and all of the playing is first-rate. That's the situation here.

Adam Frey has full and rich tone at all dynamic levels and in all
registers, tasteful vibrato, genuinely excellent technique (all notes are
distinct, not blurry), and the gregarious nature of a soloist. And since
euphonium with orchestra is among the rarest of sonic combinations, this is a
special treat. Fine readings by the New Zealand Symphony. Kilpatrick -
