Concert Report #2
The Guest Artist Recital took place at Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall on Thursday October 18 at 7:30 pm. The Guest Artist for this evening was very well-known tuba player, Oystein Baadsvik. He was born in Trondheim, Norway and has many international awards. He was accompanied by Tomoko Kashiwagi who played the piano and Benjamin Pierce who played the euphonium. They played several pieces by Baadsvik’s wife, Anna Baadsvik. She wrote 3 pieces that were played which consisted of “New Kid”, “Sonata”, and “My Swedish Heart”. They also played “Tres Danzas” by Niklas Sivelov (b. 1968), “Fnugg Red Duet” by Oystein Baadsvik (b. 1966), “Oblivion” Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992), and “Tuba Suite” by Gordon Jacob (1895-1984).

When I used to think of a tuba I used to think of a tuba from marching band because that’s all I had ever been exposed to. Watching Baadsvik play was an experience all in its own. His facial expressions and hand movements were fascinating to watch. The first piece had various crescendos. The dynamics would drastically change making the piece more exciting. I got a sense of hopefulness listening to this piece.
The second piece was a Sonata. This was the world premiere of that piece. It had 3 movements, a fast, a slow, and an even faster. It was based on a scale, half step, whole step, and half step. It was very evident when the next movement was about to happen because there were several measures of rest. During the third movement the tempo definitely sped up. At the end of this piece it definitely looked like they enjoyed playing that piece.
The third arrangement “My Swedish Heart” was a Swedish style that combined both minor (sad) and major (hap...
