“His rendering of my concerto far surpasses anything a composer might hope for”

John Williams - composer

Baadsvik is a player of exceptional skill.

BBC Music Magazine

…his capacity for lyricism in a recording that emancipates the tuba from its Cinderella role with ear-catching panache. Baadsvik shows that anything a violin can do, a tuba can do too.

The Daily Telegraph, England

This is a CD that makes you happy. Top score for interpretation, technical quality and repertoire.

Phono Forum, Germany

Phenomenal virtuosity. A recording that has the best possibility of opening the ears of a large and curious audience.

Aftenposten, Norway

Baadsvik’s tuba, a lyrical revelation.

The Age, Melbourne, Australia

Critics’ Choice, Gramophone 12/2007 “Subterranean beauty, stunningly played by tubist Øystein Baadsvik.”

Ivan Moody, Gramophone

It is a true joy to hear the interaction between the orchestra, the choir and the soloist. They are creating highlight after highlight with wonderful music.

Veronika Søum, Adresseavisen

Fantastically accomplished practitioner of the esoteric

Daniel J. Wakin, New York Times

Quite a showcase for a superb player

Andrew McGregor, BBC Radio 3 - England

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...
