Internet references, biography information:
Kjell Magne Andersen, musician and composer; born in 1954. At an age of ten he began to play the guitar and later he was presented for the clarinet.
He has got his musical education from Barratt Due’s Music Institute in Oslo , with clarinet as primary instrument.
He studied clarinet with Professor Richard Kjeldstrup, at the Norwegian Academy of Music, and later with Monika Lund, the solo clarinetist of the Norwegian Opera. This led to his debut concert in Oslo Concert hall in 1985.
His skills, in terms of composition, were attained through several years of studies in composition and counterpoint with some of the most outstanding Norwegian composers – among others – Maj Sønstervold, Trygve Madsen and Wolfgang Plagge.
Experience as a musician in many genres, such as the symphony orchestra, big band, folk, symphonic band, rock and dance music, has been an inspiration in his creative work.
He also plays banjo in a traditional New Orleans jazz group.
Andersen has composed solo pieces for various orchestral instruments, songs, music for choirs, both male - and mixed choirs, guitar, piano, string quartet, bassoon quartet and a large landscaped work, a Christmas Oratorio, for choirs, soloists, narrator and orchestra.
His compositions are characterized by well-crafts, both in forms and composition.
Andersen works today as a composer and music teacher, and instructs in both clarinet and saxophone, in addition to teaching music theory
