Øystein Baadsvik is the only tuba virtuoso to have carved out a career exclusively as a soloist, rather than becoming a member of an orchestra or accepting a teaching post. His multi-faceted musical career as a soloist, chamber musician, lecturer and recording artist has taken him all over the world. The unique virtuosity and musicality Baadsvik brings to the tuba has established him as the exemplar of the instrument. Baadsvik studied under the celebrated tuba player Harvey Phillips, Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the Department of Music at Indiana University and with the legendary Arnold Jacobs, Principal Tuba with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Øystein Baadsvik’s international career began in 1991 when he was awarded two prizes at the prestigious Concours International d’Exécution Musicale in Geneva. He works constantly to expand musical horizons of the tuba and has premiered some forty solo works by composers from the USA, Russia, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland. In this ongoing process, he has developed new tuba-playing techniques that have been used in a number of more recent works for the instrument.
