Siegfried & Fafnir, op.77b for euphonium & piano
This piece was written having the nordic mythology as an inspiration, specifically the battle between Siegfried and the dragon Fafnir (known as Fafner in the Richard Wagner’s operas).
It was thought to be played on a tenor Wagner tuba (in Bb) and edited also for euphonium giving the proximity between these two instruments. In the middle of the piece there is an optional cadenza, that can be ignored or replaced by one composed by the performer, but in this case it should begin and end with the tritone interval (G-C#).
Parts available in Bass Clef (in C) and Treble Clef (in Bb)
