Ha ha! This is absolutely hilarious! As a trombone player, I am forced to disagree with you on this mute point. You see, I think the reason that euphoniums are never used in orchestras is that the composers know that it is impossible to find a euphoniumist who is good enough to play a solo . Now, an extended trombone solo in the next installment of LOTR, that's something worth considering .
