TERJE VIKEN: Shadow to Shadow 3 – Excerpt for perusal:

About the composer:

Ever since my early teenage years I dreamt of playing in a large symphony orchestra. In 1991 I became principal percussionist in the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and this started my journey as a musician. The great classics – Beethoven, Shostakovich, Mahler – among other composers of great substance, are still just as amazing and important to me today in my current job as co-principal percussionist of the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, where I have been for the last 22 years.

I enjoy playing chamber music, have performed as soloist with multiple orchestras and participated in a number of festivals. Every year I teach at summer courses with The Norwegian National Youth Orchestra.

As a teenager and later as a student at the Norwegian Academy of Music, I discovered contemporary music. Several composers made a huge impression on me, inspiring my own compositional creativity. My activities as a composer have flourished in recent years with new pieces of mine performed by great musicians and published by Norsk Musikkforlag.

I still get goosebumps almost every week at work. Being involved in music on a daily basis – playing, composing and listening – makes my life rich and colourful.
