Glover expands euph repertoire in India

Euphonium star Mark Glover has been bringing the sound of the instrument to a brand new audience in India.

  Mark Glover accepts the applause in Pune

Well known British euphonium player and Sterling Instruments artist Mark Glover has just given a ground breaking solo recital at the Mazda Hall in Pune, India.

Commenting on the occasion Mark told 4BR that it has become something of a mission of his to try and get the euphonium projected to new audiences around the world, with the opportunity to perform at the acclaimed concert venue coming as a great honour through the Poona Music Society.

So many people told me that it was the first time they had heard the instrument and were fascinated to find out more about it and its performance historyMark Glover


"I was delighted to be asked to perform and the audience certainly enjoyed the recital. So many people told me that it was the first time they had heard the instrument and were fascinated to find out more about it and its performance history."

Such was the popularity that Mark soon sold out of his latest CD 'Hustle', with highlights of the recital which saw him accompanied by pianist Nadine Crasto, being Wesley Kendrick's arrangement of Faure's 'Pavane', new compositions by Dubai based composers Tamara Sirius and Assad Hamzy, 'Lullaby for Lucy' written as a gift to Mark's daughter by Singaporean Alex Thio, plus a triple tongue polka called 'The Devil's Tongue'.

Mark is now looking ahead to his recital at the 2019 International Tuba and Euphonium Conference in the USA in May.
