Norway

Marius Noss Gundersen has composed music for solo guitar for some of the most prominent classical guitarists in Norway. On this new album the 5 following guitarists have recorded their pieces. Christina Sandsengen, Randall Avers, Gjermund Titlestad, Thomas Kjekstad, and Sven Lundestad.

Marius is specialized in composing for classical guitar and his music has been played and recorded on numerous occasions. His musical style spans from melodic and tonal to more experimental languages, although he leans towards the more melodic influences. Both Brazilian and Norwegian music, classical forms, and some clearly modern ideas inspire the music on this album.

Seasons, composed for Christina Sandsengen: a suite in 4 movements that reflect the four seasons. The music is inspired by Norwegian folk music. SPRING is a little dance, SUMMER reflects lazy days by the sea, AUTUMN is rich in colors with falling leaves, and WINTER begins with a clear Norwegian landscape where the snowy weather becomes more and more intense.

Musical Evolution, composed for Randall Avers: a set of variations on an original theme by Marius. Each variation is inspired by an era in music history: the Renaissance, the Baroque, Classic, Romantic, Impressionism, Modernism, Blues, and Jazz.

Preludes, composed for Gjermund Titlestad: 5 preludes with a nod to composers like Heitor Villa-Lobos and Augustin Barrios Mangore

Lament, composed for Thomas Kjekstad: composed after Trump won the election in 2016. Musically, the piece reflects my frustration and shocking reaction to what was happening around the world at this time, a lament.

Sonata - Echoes of Brazil, composed for professor Sven Lundestad: sonata in 4 movements where each movement is a musical reflection of places I have visited in Brazil. Musically, it is inspired by genres such as Samba, Bossa Nova, Choro, etc.
