Steven Mead (born 1962 in Bournemouth, England) is definitely an British virtuoso euphonium soloist and teacher that has performed a huge role in achieving worldwide recognition from the instrument. He’s performed solo concerti with lots of symphony orchestras, including: the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Lahti Symphony Orchestra and Helsinki Philharmonic, Capella Cracoviensis, the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra and also the Japan Chamber Orchestra. He’s premiered functions by Martin Ellerby, Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, Vladimir Cosma, Goff Richards, John Reeman, Rolf Rudin and Philip Sparke, among others. Goff Richards’ Pilatus, Aagaard-Nilsen’s Concerto for Euphonium and Orchestra, Reeman’s Sonata for Euphonium and Ellerby’s Euphonium Concerto counseled me written specifically for Mead.
