Program Notes

Morceau de Concert was a title which Camille Saint-Saens used frequently for solo works composed to display the capabilities of various instruments and the virtuosity of his associates. In Opus 94, written in 1893, the horn was the solo instrument.

In keeping with the two versions the celebrated French composer wrote -- one for horn with orchestra and the other with piano -- I have transcribed the opus so it can be played by solo euphonium with either band or piano accompaniment.
