Preface:

The compositions in this opus are based on local folk music material from Vest-Agder County, Norway. In some of them, I have added my own thematic material. Because of this, there are some changes to the original melodies, and some versions differ a lot from the original.

Bruremarsj after Martin Tolleison Eftestøl (1868-1935)
This Wedding March is based on a transcription made by Ole Mørk Sandvik (1875-1976) in 1922. He transcribed the tune after visiting the Fiddler Martin T. Eftestøl on his farm at Risnes in 1922.

Åkrogjen II after Trygve Eftestøl (1901-1993)
The name Åkrogjen means “a curve in the river.” Trygve Eftestøl said the melody was “to a Fine Midsummer Eve” of 1925. The melody is based on my own transcription.

Springar after Anders from Knaben (1891-1970)
Originally a Norwegian dance called “springar“. I heard it played by my father. It is based on my own transcription.

Trippar II after Lars Mjåland (1888-1965)
This is a composition, based on a tune after a Fiddler from Åseral in Vest-Agder County. It is based on a transcription made by Ole Mørk Sandvik.

Griffenfeldt after Trygve Eftestøl
Originally a Norwegian dance called “reinlender”. I heard it played by my father. The dance is based on my own transcription.

Bruremarsj after Trygve Eftestøl
My father played this march a lot, and I remember it from my childhood. The Wedding March is based on my own transcription.

The tunes were played on a standard violin.
