Two of the UK's leading young euphonium talents have combined for a joint recording project.
Adam Bokaris and Daniel Thomas, the solo euphonium players of Grimethorpe and Black Dyke respectfully have collaborated on a work written by Japanese composer Kosuke Yamashita, entitled, 'Eternal Story'.
Originally composed as a feature for trumpet and saxophone it is the first time it has been performed a euphonium duet by the Besson and Geneva artists.
Adam told 4BR: "It's always good to work with wonderful musicians — and none come better than Daniel.
The work was originally written for the remarkable duo of Norwegian trumpeter, Tine Thing Helseth and Japanese saxophonist, Yasuto Tanaka, but I felt it would also work wonderfully well for the euphonium.
Daniel and I have worked on our audio editing skills over the last few months as we know it provides an exciting opportunity to reach out to a new audience as performers."
He added: "We both have a real desire to also provide opportunities for the students we teach at Huddersfield University and University of Salford, so this is an avenue we wish to develop further."
