Steve will be in the recording studios of the Croation Radio Symphony Orchestra from monday to thursday, 12-15 October, recording some solo tracks for a new CD with the entire brass section of the orchestra. The recording comes about after a highly successful concert together in Zagreb on 16th May. All parties decided a recording should be made, especially because of the exciting new Euphonium Concerto by Croatian composer and trombonist Vanja Lisjak, which was so acclaimed after the premiere in May. The three movement concerto is a masterly work which deserves a much wider audience, hence the recording. Vanja has arranged all the other tracks on the CD too, and Steve's other solos with be the beautiful Pavane Pour Une Enfante Defunte by Maurice Ravel and the Pavane by Gabriel Faure.
The sheet music for the Concerto is almost ready for publication and so euphonium enthusiasts will also be able to play it as well as listen to it. The CD will be issued on the Bocchino label at the beginning of 2010.
