Konsert på Kleppe AlbumPurchased

Konsert på Kleppe Per Sæmund Bjørkum, fiddle Jon Faukstad, accordion Recorded and produced by Tore Skille This album was recorded in 2005 at an old farm called Kleppe in the Gudbrandsdalen valley. Today Kleppe in Vågå serves as home for a family and operates also as a center for cultural exhibitions and concerts. Jon Faukstad and Per Sæmund Bjørkum have played there many times. The first part is devoted to the music of Niels Ursin, Oluf Melvold, Christian Ohlberg and Anders Sørensen, four Norwegian composers who lived and worked in the 19th century as educated, professional musicians. Their dance music shows great kinship to other European music of that era. Their music was adopted by many fiddlers and has become an important part of the living folk music tradition of Gudbrandsdalen. The themes in Lyaren (The Listener) refer to a famous battle in Gudbrandsdalen in 1612, when an army of Scottish mercenaries was defeated by local Norwegian farmers. The wonderful tone in the middle can still be heard among fiddlers both in Shetland and Norway. For 25 years, Jon Faukstad was the musical partner to Hans W. Brimi (1917-1998), one of Norway´s most prominent fiddlers. Inspired by the beautiful scenery in Gudbrandsdalen, Brimi composed a number of tunes, many of them in a distinct lyrical style. Anders Viken (1898-1977) was a teacher and a skilled fiddler from Jølster. He composed hundreds of dances and concerts pieces. Brursuite (Wedding medley) is a musical description of a traditional Norwegian wedding. It begins with a bridal march followed by a hymn, marking the church ceremony. At the wedding feast that follows, guest enjoy the bridal waltz. dancing continues with several springleik-tunes, for an older traditional dance in 3/4-time from Gudbrandsdalen. The medley ends with a halling, in which solo dancers show off their physical strength and prowess.
