Abstract: The goal of this project was to transcribe and edit three Italian arias for solo euphonium and piano. The arias were chosen from three different periods during the nineteenth century, to explore different solo uses in operatic settings. The process of transcription, how the works were chosen, background information on each work, and a short explanation of how each aria fit into its respective opera are all presented in the document. While all three arias are for tenor voice and in Italian, the contrasts of time period of composition, length of aria and variety of pedagogical tools found in the arias allow for good contrast in preparation and performance. Areas for further research primarily include the transcription of arias in other languages as well as differing time periods.
