- 100 Folketonar frao Hardanger (arrangement of folk music)
Made extended use of Norwegian folk music in his compositions. Studied music at
the concervatory in Leipzig, Germany and in Paris. Moved to Norheimsund in
Hardanger, Norway in 1942 and started working on collecting and arranging
Norwegian folk music. After the war he toured Europe as concert pianist. For
his songs he used text by Arnulf Øverland, Knut Hamsun and Herman Wildenwey.
Most famous work: 100 Folketonar frao Hardanger and the song "Vi skal ikkje
sova burt sumarnatta".
His house burned down along with most of his musical manuscripts in
most of his music has been lost and friends and musicologists are trying to
reconstruct some of his works.
2 CDs exist of his music on the Naxos label; Piano Concertos 1 and 5 on
Naxos 8.555077 and
A Hundred Hardanger Tunes - Suites 1 and 4 on Naxos 8.555078. Both CDs have
