Hundsnes, Svein

I wish to come into contact with ensembles or soloists who look for new music that can be accessible for a wider audience, yet still sounding new.

Like what was also the case with composers from earlier times, much of my music combines existing trends within art music with popular dances or popular music. We find this approach in the dance suites of the Baroque era, the menuets of the Classical symphony, the waltzes, polonaises, mazurkas and national folk music and dances in the Romantic period, and jazz influence found in some of the music of Stravinsky and his sympathizers. In my opinion Tchaikovsky's symphonic developments of Russian folk music is particular successful.
The divide between popular and jazz music on the one hand, and 'avant-garde' on the other is increasingly being challenged today, and many composers aim at finding a personal musical language in this schizm. So am I.
