A standard solo and a mainstay for many competitions, Vintage combines Gillingham's intimate knowledge of how to write effectively for the instrument. This composition features wonderful soaring lines in the euphonium (ascending up to high C's) while at the same time mixing in a jaunty and highly rhythmic 5/4 section. All the technical aspects of the piece, while challenging, are well thought out and effective for performer and audience. This full wind band version of this features some lush instrumental textures and makes it a common choice for programming.
