Boris Diev’s Concerto for Tuba and Wind Orchestra was composed for and is dedicated to Øystein Baadsvik, who gave the first performance in 1996. It is one of the most complex works that Diev has written for a solo instrument. The concerto carries the stamp of contemporary avant-garde techniques throughout, here used as a means of musical expression, in delineating the dramatic development, as well as in some more lyrical sections.

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!

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...
