Even other instruments in the brass family have repertoire composed by historically important musicians like Haydn and Mozart. Though the euphonium began to enjoy recognition as a virtuosic solo instrument with bands in the early 20th century, a number of these solos were borrowed from other instruments and none were concertos.

A piece of the standard repertoire, this concerto contains writing that will challenge and engage both performer and listener. The middle movement contains some of the most expressive lyrical writing in the repertoire. In the third movement, good technical facility will be needed as well as multiple tonguing for its jovial lighthearted nature.
There are a number of dexterity challenges in this movement; thus, it is common to have younger players study the first two movements due to their significance even though they may not be ready to tackle the final movement. Horovitz provides extensive detail as to articulation, tempo, and dynamics. Orchestral parts are similar to a Mozart type orchestra and provide an easy ensemble to balance.
