I hope this is not too off-topic, but I recently watched Hibike! Euphonium (Sound! Euphonium), and I was wondering if anybody knows where I can find sheet music for the piece that they play in the competition. Specifically, I'm looking for Crescent Moon Dance by Namie Horikawa (I don't know if this is an alias or not). I play the trumpet, and I really wanted to try out Kousaka's solo. If anybody could help me out, that would be appreciated!


According to the official website, the official sheet music for Crescent Moon Dance 「三日月の舞」 was given as extra on purchase of the Volume 1 of BD/DVD at certain stores in Japan1. Unfortunately, Volume 1 already went on sale on Jun 17, 2015.

Likewise, the sheet music for the opening 「DREAM SOLISTER」 and the ending 「Tutti」 will be given as extra on purchase of BD/DVD Volume 2 and 3 respectively.

1 The stores as listed on official website: 玉光堂、バンダレコード・ライオン堂、JEUGIA、十字屋CROSS、新星堂、山野楽器、ヤマハミュージックリテイリング

The advertisement, as posted by one of the stores on Twitter, inviting people to reserve a copy of the BD/DVD for the sheet music:

  • Thanks. It's too bad they only released it with the DVD, but hopefully I can find a copy. – user2950265 Jul 2 '15 at 23:09

    @user2950265: It's not really included with the BD/DVD - like how limited version is more expensive and comes with more stuffs. It's a first come first serve, store-specific extra. Some stores I listed above also give out the music sheet if you buy the BD/DVD from their online shop (though I don't know if any is still available). – nhahtdh Jul 3 '15 at 2:00

There are multiple fan transcriptions/arrangements of the piece available on MuseScore:

According to the Hibike Euphonium wiki:

As of 2016, the sheet music has been released for purchase by Japanese wind ensembles, and is gaining recognition as a legitimate piece of wind repertoire in the country.

So, if you have contacts in the Japanese orchestral/wind band scores world, you should be able to purchase a copy.

    @Alagaros: No, my answer doesn't cover fan transcription. – nhahtdh Jul 10 '15 at 18:45

I know I'm super duper late to this thread and you probably have found this info already, but since this thread is one of the top google results for "crescent moon dance" I thought I would reply here.

The sheet music is available for purchase at Print Gakufu. Use Chrome to translate the page (it is all in Japanese). They block any non-Japanese credit cards through their integrated credit card payment service, however the payment service Rakuten is accepted. Rakuten will allow you to use any credit card to make the payment.
