Instrumentation: Concert Band: Overture: This is a good and short show opener or even a show closer in a concert. It is upbeat and very rock’n rollish. It was originally composed for and used as the Overture to the TV show “Momarkedet” 1989, a fundraiser for the Norwegian Red Cross. OVERTURE is also orchestrated for big band (from the CD “STROLLING WITH THE GROOVE”) and as heard on this CD, for symphonic band.

Instrumentation: Concert Band:Modus Vivendi: This composition for oboe and symphonic band was originally written for a Nordic symphony orchestra competition in Denmark in 1988 where it won the Danish Radio Cup prize. MODUS VIVENDI means “way of living” in Latin and was dedicated to Mr. Brynjar Hoff who was one of the finest oboe players in Norway. I really enjoyed making this composition sound a little impressionistic. It is possible to perform this piece by substituting the oboe with a soprano saxophone.

Instrumentation: Concert Band: The Big Bang, is a composition commissioned by Frank Eliassen at Halsen Symphonic Youth band in 1995 and funded by “The Composers Association of Norway”. THE BIG BANG consists of three parts in one movement. First comes a loud chord continued by a 16th note theme, which is particularly fun for the tuba players to play. This builds up to a climax with the whole orchestra. After a small cadenza in the Eb clarinet (can also be performed by Bb clarinet) comes a blues part with nicely harmonized jazz chords. This is a great opportunity to show off the Bass-clarinet player. It would also be nice to use a drum set for this section. Next comes the lyrical part of the composition. This is a very melodic part and according to the musicians is fun to play. Here there is something for everyone. THE BIG BANG ends like it starts, only this time with the 16th note theme first and it all ends up in ” THE BIG BANG “. This piece best suits concerts of a more light music genre, grade 3-4, but has also been used with more classical pieces to create a contrast in a performance.

Instrumentation: Concert Band: Strolling: This is a nice 12/8-4/4 groove and very melodic in a commercial way. Strolling works very well on the dance floor. Originally composed for a small group on commission from the Norwegian Radio Broadcasting Company. Later STROLLING was also orchestrated for big band (from the CD “STROLLING WITH THE GROOVE”) and as heard on this CD, for symphonic band.

Instrumentation: Concert Band: Celebration March: This whole composition came to me in my sleep as a story. First comes the dark theme of an enemy who takes possession, followed by a single person wearing an elf hat coming over the mountain. More and more people join in, and through a big battle, they chase the enemy away. This ends up with a big celebration.

H2O Film music – Overture From The CD “A Look Inside

Award Winning Piece 1988

Instrumentation: Concert Band: H2O, is another composition commissioned by Frank Eliassen at Halsen Symphonic Youth band in 1997 and also funded by “The Composers Association of Norway”. H2O is composed in a melodic sounding language. In this composition I’ve wanted to describe the different modes and elements of water. Starting with raindrops going into small streams, the composition moves further through springs, waterfalls, romantic lakes to large rivers, temperamental waters, big waves and heroic oceans. H2O is orchestrated both for symphony orchestra and, as on this CD, for symphonic band plus electric bass and synthesizer. Copyright 09-30-1986

Pagina Piece in bitonal style From The CD “A Look Inside

Tell Me More!

Instrumentation: Concert Band: Pagina, is written in a bitonal style. It is one of my first compositions written in 1978 for symphony orchestra. It is a dedication to the oboe player and conductor Mr. Tom Clausen who unfortunately passed away much too early. PAGINA means page in Latin. A page in a book or in life? At that point in life I found it important not to describe to the audience what the composition contained but to let the audience judge for themselves. PAGINA was re-orchestrated for FMKV for this very project.

Instrumentation: Concert Band, Piano, Solo Cello: Aage Kvalbein (cello)
The Opposite Of One: This concerto is in three movements, where each of the movements contains a contrasting melody to the main theme. The idea with the concerto was to write it in such a way that all the movements contained three different styles of music. This was done because Aage masters these different styles beautifully. The 1st movement is written in a popular style. The 2nd movement is very melancholic and written more in a classical style and the 3rd movement is very temperamental and written more in a contemporary style. This concerto was commissioned by Aage Kvalbein and funded by “The Composers Association of Norway” and was finalized for the Norwegian Radio Symphony Orchestra on June 1-1995. It was then re-orchestrated for FMKV plus a piano for this very project in the beginning of year 2000. Copyright 04-28-1997
