Missa da Tromba

The tradition of pairing trumpet and organ goes back a long way; it is, however, only in recent years that Norwegian composers have found the inspiration to write concert music for this combination of instruments. In addition to the fanfares and festivity often associated with the trumpet, today’s composers also exploit the instrument’s potential for expressing tender, meditative moods.

Music by Kjell Mørk Karlsen, Jon Laukvik, Ketil Vea and Egil Hovland.

Jan Fredrik Christiansen was born 1942 in Lebesby, Norway, and studied with Harry Kvebæk, William J. Overton (BBC Symphony Orchestra) and Adolph Herseth (Chicago Symphony Orchestra). He was appointed to a position in the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra in 1966 and was principal trumpeter from 1973 to 2007. Christiansen has performed under many conductors including Leopold Stokowski, Witold Lutoslawski, Zubin Mehta, Paul Kletski, Kirill Kondrasjin, Herbert Blomstedt and Andre Previn. Most important to him nonetheless were the twenty-three years under Mariss Jansons as principal conductor.

Terje Winge (b.1950) made his début recital in 1970. His repertoire ranges from early baroque to music of the present day. A particular area of interest for him lies in French romantic music and the modern French school, including the majority of Olivier Messiaen's large scale organ works.
