Trygve Madsen

Born: 1940
Country: Norway

Trygve Madsen has proven himself to be a prolific worker and particularly one of the most productive published by Musikk-Husets Forlag – in 2009, the company had 125 works by Madsen in their catalogue.[1] The composer has becoming increasingly well known of late which is perhaps largely to do with the inclusion of his work in music syllabuses around the world – the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music included the ‘Prelude and Fugue in C’ (Opus 101) as one of the optional pieces for Grade 8 pianists,[3] and in 2009 ‘The Dream of the Rhinoceros’ was used as an obligatory piece at a national horn competition in Poland.[1] Aside from printed music, the composer has also had his worked featured on thirty-six CDs, eight of which were solely dedicated to his work.

Fnugg Red on Hong Kong "national" TV. Ben Pierce and I was interviewed and played a world premiere of the duet version of Fnugg Red last week. Much fun!

Last week’s Asia Tuba Euphonium Festival at the Chinese University of Hong Kong featured around 50 players from Norway, the United States, Korea, Japan, Thailand and Taiwan. 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...
