The Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota, Mindekirken, and Tord Gustaven's North American management join forces to present one of Norway's leading artists.
Tord Gustavsen is a jazz pianist and composer, touring extensively and recording as both soloist and bandleader for several of his own ensembles. Gustavsen was born in Oslo and raised in rural Hurdal, Akershus where he "grew up playing church music.” He earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology before he turned to music full time. A prize-winning performer and composer, he is recognized for his “rapt, pristine, meditative music.” He also maintains his interests in Psychology, writing about the psychological processes involved in musical improvisation.
