As a composer Arban might not have scaled the greatest heights, but his works certainly betray his technical skill as a performer. The twelve Fantasies with Theme and Variations that he composed for the cornet are undeniably entertaining, but for the soloist they are exceptionally demanding display pieces. In particular the last of these works, the famous variations on The Carnival of Venice, have maintained their place in the repertoire and have also been played in arrangements for other instruments. This version is arranged for the tuba by Anna Baadsvik.

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...
