Product Description

About the Artist

Oystein Baadsvik started playing the tuba at the age of fifteen. He soon decided to explore the tuba's possibilities as a solo instrument, and at the age of eighteen won first prize in a Norwegian national competition for soloists. Within the space of two years he had made his own programmes for Norwegian Radio and had been a soloist with most of Norway's professional symphony orchestras.

Oystein Baadsvik studied under Michael Lind, Roger Bobo, John Fletcher, Arnold Jacobs and Harvey Phillips. His international career began with two prozes at the prestigious Concours International d'Execution Musicale (CIEM) in Geneva in 1991. Today he is in great demand as a soloist and lecturer all over the world and he is unique in being a full-time tuba soloist. He works constantly to expand the musical aspects of the tuba and, as well as performing solo repertoire for tuba and orchestra, he collaborates with jazz, rock and pop musicians. In all these genres his desire to communicate with his audience has always been his guiding principle. In consequence, he has also developed new tuba-playing techniques that have been used in a number of more recent works for the instrument. In 1999 Oystein Baadsvik was granted a two-year scholarship by the Norwegian state to continue his work in this respect. Oystein Baadsvik has premiered some thirty solo works by composers from the USA, Russia, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland. He also composes music himself and conducts many of his own orchestral concerts.

Format: Audio CD
This is a fantastic showcase for an oft maligned instrument and credit goes to Mr Baadsvik for his technical and musical skill. Tuba Carnival is a fantastic collection of virtuosic works which could easily be held up to any comparable 'typical' solo instrument collection. It is an inspiring CD, and well recommended from me to Tubists and other listeners alike
