Description

Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen (b. 1964, Norway) is one of Norway's finest composers and has gained an international reputation for his music for Brass- and Wind Bands and Ensembles.  

The broad spectre of musical activity, the versitality in his production and his interest in working with amateurs and young musicians, can be explained by the fact that Aagaard-Nilsen sees composition as a kind social activity

His contact with the contemporary music scene in Bergen resulted in commissions from the Norwegian section of ISCM, the BIT 20 Ensemble and festivals like Borealis (Bergen International Contemporary Music Festival) and the International Festival of Bergen (Festspillene).

Prima Vista is delighted to re-release one of his early works for brass band SVoR - a superb suite based on three Norwegian folksongs:

I - Springdans       II - Vuggesang        III - Reinlender
