Three Miniatures is part of a series of pieces for all of the brass instruments that I have been working on for the past number of years – a Postcards for the solo instrument alone, a Three Miniatures with piano, a Nocturne with strings, and a full Concerto. The Three Miniatures is rather technical and angular in design, and makes use of many mixed rhythms in the first movement. This is followed by a slow and reflective second movement which leads directly to the Allegro third movement. Three Miniatures for tuba and piano was written for Dan Perantoni.

Last week’s Asia Tuba Euphonium Festival at the Chinese University of Hong Kong featured around 50 players from Norway, the United States, Korea, Japan, Thailand and Taiwan. 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...
