Euphonium 4-3-2-1 at Best Video Performance Space

Sponsored by: Best Video Film & Cultural Center

James Berger presents Euphonium 4-3-2-1 on Wednesday, Mar. 22, starting at 8 PM. The cover is $5.

It will feature the Low End Brass Quartet (Isiaiah Cooper, Trombone; Bob Beech, french horn; Jim Berger, euphonium; and Keith Yarbrough, tuba). The Yet-Unnamed Trio (Dylan McDonnell, flute; Erica Holahan, bassoon; Jim Berger, euphonium). The Bassoon-Euphonium Paradise Duo (Erica Holahan, bassoon and Jim Berger, euphonium) and a couple of solo pieces…—thus, the 4-3-2-1 title.

It’s an hour of classical music from baroque to contemporary, performed by a variety of instruments and ensembles. Our specialty is performing pieces written for one set of instruments on other instruments– So, Mozart’s overture to The Magic Flute performed by a brass quartet; Bartok duets for two violins performed by bassoon and euphonium; a Bach cello suite performed on trombone; an Ibert trio for oboe, clarinet, and bassoon performed by bassoon, flute, and .... yes, euphonium; an Arthur Frackenpohl trombone quartet performed by french horn, tuba, euphonium, and, ok, one trombone; the great duet for two male voices from Bizet’s opera The Pearl Fishers performed by bassoon and euphonium.  It’s fun, it’s lively, it gives a new sense and feeling to the music. And it’s all great music.
