Plau: Concerto for Tuba and Strings. iI is in sonata form and comprises three movements – Prologue, Canzone and Finale. The grief-ridden middle movement was composed in memory of the composer’s wife, who had just passed away. Øystein Baadsvik gave the first performance of the concerto in 2001 at a concert in Poland with the Wratislava Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jan Stanienda.
