Jean Baptiste Arban

Born: 1825
Dead: 1889
Country: France

Jean-Baptiste Arban (1825-1889) was born in Lyon and is principally remembered as one of the finest cornet players of all time. His artistry was astonishing and he made acclaimed tours all over Europe; as a conductor, his career included performances at the Paris Opéra. In 1857 he became professor of saxhorn at the École Militaire, and in 1869 he established a cornet class at the Paris Conservatoire. In 1873 he conducted in St. Petersburg for the first time, with such success that he eventually settled there. He did not return to Paris until 1880, when he took up the position of cornet professor, at the same time giving up his career as a touring virtuoso. His cornet and saxhorn tutors remained in use for many years after his death.

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...
