The euphonium is said to have been invented in Weimar in 1843. In German and Russian military bands it came to replace the bassoon, suggesting that transcriptions of works for bassoon should make an interesting and useful addition to euphonium solo reper

I play euphonium and its larger cousin, the tuba, as an amateur, though many years ago I was a rather serious student in music performance. In those days (35 years ago) no one had the chops to perform at this level. Now, there are a raft of guys (and some women performers, too) who can routinely handle what we used to think of as "screamers," or pieces requiring preposterous levels of virtuosity and technical prowess. As with other instruments, the level of virtuosity expected of our performers has risen exponentially. Mr. Frischer meets them all.
This is also one of the few readily available CD's that are more than euphonium solo or with piano accompaniment. Having a full orchestra makes for a better musical experience overall. The acoustics and engineering are top notch. My one regret (thus the four rather than five star rating which I would reserve for the rarest of cases) is that most of the selections are transcriptions and not music originally written for euphonium.
