Program Notes

As a composer of a great variety of works including a ballet, concert overture, two symphonies, numerous concerti for wind and string instruments, many pedagogic works for piano and for chorus, songs and film music, Gordon Jacob ranks also as one of the foremost contributors to the repertoire of original works for military band. Jacob served as professor of composition at London's Royal College of Music from 1924 to 1972.

Fantasia for Euphonium, completed in 1969 and first published in 1973, was written for Michael Mamminga, an American euphoniumist at that time pursuing post graduate studies in England, and is dedicated to him. Originally written for euphonium and wind band, the composer scored the accompaniment for symphony orchestra in 1982.
