> Don't forget the donkey theme in Don Quixote for tenor tuba/euph

Yeah, there not as uncommon as a lot of people think, sometimes I wish there would be a list of good orchestral Euphonium parts to give to people (maybe we could come up with something, but I dont think I'm qualified)

> Maybe Shore could sneak Mars into the next films score..

> Sorta like Zimmer did for Gladiator.

Ha,ha...I actually didn't mind Zimmer's blatant ripoff of the Holst (and others) I thought it functioned well in the film and was interesting. Its a little too blatant to be an homage to the work, but if you think about it like that it isn't so bad. Its not uncommon to use other works in original compositions. Mahler quoted folk songs in his first symphony (folk songs are different than ripping off other original compositions, but to the listener, why should it be different?) The first movement of Mahler's 2nd sounds blatantly Wagnerian, and it was parodied by Bartok (I guess that doesn't seem to bother me if its interesting)

Anyway, sorry to ramble, do you have any other good euphonium parts to bring out?
