In Anna Baadsvik’s own comments to Memory of a Rose she relates that the piece was conceived ‘after a very lifelike dream about that most unthinkable thing: the loss of that which one holds dearest in life. I was absorbed by the idea, and feeling deeply for all those who have actually experienced this, I set down my dream in music: an all-enveloping personal disaster which encompasses moods ranging from fury, the darkest sorrow and chaos to happy memories, heart-breaking loss and resig- nation.’ Memory of a Rose first existed as a piece for tuba and brass quintet, and was later developed into a concerto for tuba and fanfare band.

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...
