Invierno Porteño is part of a four-movement cycle named Las cuatro estaciones porteñas or Four Buenos Aires Seasons which, as the name suggests, is a tribute to the tango of Buenos Aires and also to the baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi, who also wrote a certain cycle of concertos on the subject of the four seasons, and traces of whose music become apparent right at the end.

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...
