CHRISTIANIALIV – Works from Norway's Golden Age of wind music

The second half of the 19th century is often called the "Golden Age" of Norwegian music. The reason lies partly in the international reputations established by Johan Svendsen and Edvard Grieg, but it also lies in the fact that musical life in Norway, at a time of population growth and economic expansion, enjoyed a period of huge vitality and creativity, responding to a growing demand for music in every genre. The Staff Band of the Norwegian Armed Forces (to use its modern name) played a key role in this burgeoning musical life not just by performing music for all sections of society, but also by discovering and fostering musical talent in performers and composers. Johan Svendsen, Adolf Hansen, Ole Olsen and Alfred Evensen, whose music we hear on this album, can therefore be called part of the band's history.

Facebook PHOTO ALBUM from the recording sessions


Siste del av 1800-tallet er ofte blitt kalt "gullalderen" i norsk musikk. Det skyldes ikke bare Svendsens og Griegs internasjonale posisjon, men også det faktum at musikklivet i takt med befolkningsøkning og økonomiske oppgangstider gikk inn i en glansperiode med et sterkt behov for musikk i alle sjangre. I denne utviklingen spilte Forsvarets stabsmusikkorps en sentral rolle, ikke bare som formidler av musikkopplevelser til alle lag av befolkningen, men også som talentskole for utøvere og komponister. Johan Svendsen, Adolf Hansen, Ole Olsen og Alfred Evensen er derfor en del av korpsets egen musikkhistorie.
