Steffen Schmid, tuba (Solo) (Cimbasso / Kontrabasstuba)

Steffen Schmid’s favorite composer is Richard Strauss: “His works are phenomenally orchestrated. Even after around a hundred years, one has the feeling that Strauss knew exactly what he could ‘demand’ from every instrument. In addition, melodies to kneel down over and over again – simply sensational.” The biggest cliché about his group of instruments is probably that they are always in the canteen. However, this is also where you meet Steffen Schmid most often.
