As the first folk music act featured on the ‘Live at The Office’ concert series, Gjermund Larsen Trio presented a vibrant and spirited performance in MIC’s offices in late March.
MIC and NRK’s successful office concert series continues with a spirited intimate performance by Gjermund Larsen Trio, one of the true pinnacles of contemporary Norwegian folk music.
With a solid foundation in traditional Norwegian folk music, fiddler and composer Gjermund Larsen explores other genres and styles through playful and convincing improvisation. His tunes range far and wide, spanning the spectrum from blistering fast passages to songs that almost come to an introspective standstill. At the interception between tradition and innovation, Larsen and his companions represent a veritable cornucopia of genuine musicality.
Gjermund Larsen enjoys a position as one of the most respected and active performers and composers on the contemporary Norwegian folk music scene. The Norwegian State Academy educated fiddler and composer is a member of ensembles Majorstuen, Frigg, Brødrene Larsen, Ragnhild Furebotten trio and Christian Wallumrød ensemble.
The Gjermund Larsen Trio is made up of Andreas Utnem on pump organ and Sondre Meisfjord on double bass. Their Live at The Office concert features a mix of traditionals and original compositions penned by Larsen; all of which are performed by a trio with total command of the dynamics, interplay and finesse needed to play the delicate and minimalist tunes.
