Anna Baadsvik

Born: 1966
Country: Sweden

Anna Baadsvik was born in 1966 in Sweden and wrote her first music, for solo piano, at the age of five. She went on to study the violin at Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, and composition and arranging at the Trondheim Conservatory of Music in Norway. As a violinist she has played Swedish, Irish and Norwegian folk music, rock and jazz, as well as the classical repertoire, thereby displaying a musical curiosity that has greatly influenced her own music. Her production includes compositions and arrangements for symphony orchestra and smaller ensembles as well as numerous chamber works. One of her more spec- tacular compositions is Freja’s Song, a fifty-minute piece ‘for cathedral, four hundred female singers, tuba and violin’ with improvisation as an important element.

While they were here, tuba players, Øystein Baadsvik from Norway and Benjamin Pierce from the United States came in to talk to fellow brass musician, Ben Pelletier.

The bell of the tuba fell off (!) while I walked off the stage in Canada yesterday. In front of a horrified audience I chased the bell as it bounced over the stage. I managed to grab it just before it rolled over the stage edge. Incredibly there was no damage to it. Not even a small dent. Solid german quality from Miraphone!
Backstage, my friend Lance Nagel immediately awarded me the No-bell prize 😂
Must remember to tighten those screws next time...
