This Norwegian specialist on the Argentinian instrument bandoneon came from the high mountains where the trolls reside – according to Edvard Grieg – and has made a worldwide career. Having studied the accordion at the Norwegian Academy, he moved to Paris to study orchestration and composition. And met his fate in the Argentinian bandoneon master Juan José Mosalini. His repertoire ranges from tango, Baroque, kletzmer and pop to contemporary music. Deeply serious, Per Arne Glorvigen can also be irresistibly funny.
