Erlend Apneseth Trio
available 1-5 february and 2-7 may + festivals 2017
“Blikkspor”, Hardanger fiddler Erlend Apneseth’s critically acclaimed debut album, presented fiddle tunes, Apneseth’s original compositions and improvisations side by side. On this, his follow-up album, he ventures further into an open landscape as part of a trio with extensive experience within improvisational music and rock. “Det andre rommet” is a lovely, inquisitive and adventurous album that takes the music in new and unexpected directions.

"Apneseth takes fragments of sliver-lit dance-melodies, the trio´s close, intuitive compositions groaning, rolling and clattering with a raw exploratory life"
MOJO Magazine

"Always adventurous, occasionaly startling, and frequently hauntingly beautiful. An album which rewards total immersion."

"Erlend Apneseth is a virtuoso on his eight stringed violin, the Hardanger fiddle, which is plucked, stroked, tweaked and bowed at the core of this exploration of its capabilities."

Erlend Apneseth from Jølster is one of Norway’s foremost young fiddlers. He competes in the elite Category A in the National Contest for Traditional Music, and has received so many prizes and awards that dusting his mantelpiece has become nearly a full-time job. Erlend studied at the Ole Bull Academy in Voss, as well as with Håkon Høgemo. Erlend is a performer who stands with both feet firmly planted in the Norwegian folk music tradition, but who at the same time improvises and searches for new modes of expression – all the while with the sounds of the Hardanger fiddle and folk music as his point of departure. He has collaborated with musicians from a variety of different genres, has been a soloist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and has played with larger improvisational ensembles, folk- and jazz-based groups, overtone and joik singer Torgeir Vassvik, and poet Erlend O. Nødtvedt. In 2012 he received Grappa’s New Artist Award, and the following year he released his debut album, “Blikkspor”, produced by Arve Henriksen, which received glowing reviews in the Norwegian and international media.
