Baadsvik about the composition: Many of my pieces come into being as I am improvising and fooling around. This tango theme suddenly appeared during a break in my daily practice session while working at a festival in Germany. The music is inspired by my encounter with three tangos by Astor Piazzolla, which have become part of my regular repertoire ever since I recorded them on my disc Danzas (BIS-CD- 1585) in 2006.

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...
