The terrain between modernism and nordic

Klaus Egge (1906-79) apporached classic art music by way of folk music – and saw it as something exotic and singular. Thus he understood how the techniques of classic art music could assist him in developing the folk muisc which comprised his original musical identity. For Egge, the way in which the music was constructed was always an inherently more compelling imperative than folklore, which emphasized the essentially retrogressive aspects of folk music.
