I have a question.
I'm doing babysteps with arranging for brass. ( being a guitarplayer for 30 years ).
But I like it a lot, and I'm really enjoying the online arr. courses.
I have a problem though. It has to do with the trombone and euphonium ( tuba, bariton ).
Most instruments are clear to me. But the I have a hard time making up different voices for these two. I have the tendency to treat them both as one instrument, because they seam to be in the same range. Do they have different functions ? Especially in marching music ? Or should I let them play the same, thus making the color of the voice richer.
The sound of trobone seems a lot more raw then that of euphonium, so maybe use euphonium more to complete the harmonies and trombone to cut through with counter/ echo melodies ?
I would appreciate some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.
