I got an email about the CT All-State auditions where they list possible repertoire. I have been an All-State trombone judge (jazz and wind) for about the last 15 years. I see definitely see the consequences of choosing the wrong repertoire.
So the list for trombone included Schumann's Piece for Euphonium. Huh?
Yes, this was on the list before. I judged it. It was horrible. You can't play this piece without a trigger. I am sure it was put on by a euphonium player. When I judged it I pleaded with everyone to take it out of the rotation.
I've sent in my suggestion for a replacement (Jacob: Mvt 1). I'm really hoping they change it.
