Durata: 3 min
Recorded by Baadsvik on CD: Ferry Tales
Year: 1997
Detailed instrumentation: with piano
Arrangements available in the following instrumentations:
Tuba and string orchestra

Erlend Skomsvoll about the piece: I wrote A Simple Melody, Without Words and the piano arrangement of Somewhere Over the Rainbow during a short space of time in 1997, the result of searching for something other than that which dominated my studies of jazz and classical music at the conservatory in Trondheim. The string arrangement was made as a project during my classes with the composer Bertil Palmar Johansen. (Øystein Baadsvik: In order to achieve the rather special tuba sound in this piece, I have inserted a coin into the mouthpiece.)

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...
