Johan Kvandal, a bridgebuilder between national and international tendencies in the 20th century musical life.

kr 199

Between the national and the international

Johan Kvandal is directly linked with the resurgence of national culture in inter-war Norway, both through his musical language and his family ties. As the son of composer David Monrad Johansen, he was introduced to the professional music circles of the 1930s at an early age, and the rich intellectual climate of the day was an integral part of his childhood years.

To counterbalance the wealth of influences to which he was subjected at home, he felt an urge to seek out an international milieu, to distance himself from his native Norway. Since then, Kvandal´s compositions have alternated between these two sides of himself, the national and the international. In this sense, Kvandal is an important bridgebuilder between two, often contradictory, tendencies in the musical language of 20th century Norwegian music. The result is a varied collection of musical pieces – both in the large scale format and works for smaller ensembles. Presented on this album are his expansive and dramatic “Symphonic Epos”, the more philosophical “String Quartet, no. 2”, the unusually rich ornamented lively musical imagination of the “Quartet for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello”, the neo-classical tendencies of the “Duo for Violin and Cello”, the folk musical inspired “Norwegian Stev Tunes”, and many more of this important composer´s works.
