For Guitar and String Quintet (Vl. 1 & 2, Vla, Vlc, Cb).
World premiere in Tromsø Kulturhus January 22nd with the MIN Ensemble, Odd-Arne Jacobsen (guitar) and Edvard N. Debess (bass) in conjunction with the 2007 Northern Light Festival. Bass and string quintet is close to my guitar-heart. In a world where little music for such an instrumentation exists, this is my contribution. String quintet and guitar is a beautitul and underused instrumentation. For Strings Only can be played by both jazz and classical guitarists (and all other guitar players).
