According to Karl Ekman ("Jean Sibelius. His life and personality", 1936) in the performance of the Coronation Cantata (1896): "The TRUMPET blower arrived very drunk and could not be sobered in any way."

So, I think that there is a mistake in the Tawaststjerna and Barnett's book. Mr. Barnett was wondered because of this, really there isn't a tuba part in the score. Probably the english translation from Tawaststjerna was wrong, isn't it?

Interesting observation David, I have read Ekmans book but no longer have a copy. For further comments on the subject see 'Tuba Players Lament' this can be found in General Discussion, page 3.--kp

As a tubist I would like that Very Happy , but I think that the English translation of Ekman is wrong.
