Year: 2007

Tuba and fanfare orchestra

Goorhuis wrote his concerto for Baadsvik and the Fanfare Band of the Royal Netherlands Army ‘Mounted Regiments’ as a one-movement composition in sonata form, with the typical, classical contrast between the two main themes. During the development (the middle section) the composer has created a slow move- ment, similar to his procedure in works such as Sonate and Passion et Tendresse. This method gives the piece an arch structure while avoiding a clear division into separate parts.
The tuba part is fleet and virtuosic, with an important lyrical vein to balance the different elements, and cadenzas adding moments of introspective beauty as well as playfulness. The orchestral writing is colourful and adventurous, and the extensive interaction between the soloist and the band makes the piece a challenge for both.

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...
