Description

'My Mountain Top' is one of Andy's most performed and recorded works. Commissioned by the ISCM World Music Days & originally written for the Apollo Saxophone Quartet, with words and narration by Lemn Sissay, My Mountain Top has subsequently been arranged by the composer for a number of solo instruments including saxophone, tuba, alto flute, & tenor horn.

Andy Scott - My Mountain top euphonium by AstuteMusic

This arrangement scored for solo euphonium has been championed by many players, especially David Thornton (recorded on 'Devil's Duel' DOY CD229) & Glyn Williams (on the award winning CDs 'The Lure of the Red Jacket' DOY CD287, and 'A World Within' DOY CD276). Other notable brass recordings include Les Neish (multi-award winning CD 'Salt of the Earth' SFZ 150) and Scherzo Brass Quartet ('Scherzo' MHP1309).

'My Mountain Top' commences with a crackle on the accompanying CD, representing lying under the gaze of the sun and feeling the heat on your skin. The rhythmically free opening euphonium statements represent a mind that is active with thoughts but which gradually floats into a semi-conscious state. At this point the warm keyboard pads emerge and the stage is set for Lemn's magical words. The solo euphonium part weaves its way around the voice, gesturing and supporting, but never overpowering.
