  5. Journey CD

    Composer: Baadsvik, Øystein

    A Journey

    I first performed with L. Subramaniam at his Lakshminarayana Global Music Festival in 2014. During this tour across India I had the great honour and pleasure to work with some of the best musicians in the country. The biggest eye-opener though, was Subramaniam’s violin playing. During my thirty years as a professional musician I have never encountered a musician with such an intense presence while playing. This, combined with his mind-blowing technique and pure playfulness, made each concert a revelation. 

    The biggest driving force during my career has always been the joy of musical exploration, so during a day off on the tour, aboard a boat on the beautiful Kerala Backwaters, it struck me that this simply had to be explored further. I asked Subramaniam to write us a double concerto for Indian violin, tuba and orchestra. Simultaneously, the idea of a complete disc was born.

    The funny thing about small ideas is that they have a tendency to grow. All of a sudden the project included the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, conductor Jaakko Kuusisto, Ambi Subramaniam on violin, singer Kavita Krishnamurti, DSR Murthy on mridangam and Toms Mikāls on keyboard. A few years, concerts and recording sessions later, you are holding the result in your hand. A unique musical journey through classical Indian ragas, epic orchestral landscapes and breath-taking virtuosity.

  8. Snowflakes - A Classical Christmas

    A collection of the best classical Christmas songs. Øystein Baadsvik with Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and the female Choir Cantus. "Traditional yet surprising,"Snowflakes: A Classical Christmas" combines the lush, warm sound of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra with a women's choir and talented tuba player Øystein Baadsvik. The ever-versatile Baadsvik takes on several roles in this recording: often, his tuba's singing the melody, but he also backs up the choir with swirling countermelody in "God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen" and "O Come All Ye Faithful".

  10. Øystein Baadsvik plays Tuba Concertos
