In 1979 I founded a classical guitar quartet with three Swedes: Clas-Bertil Nilsson, Jörgen Nilhamn and Jörgen Åström. We called ourselves "Fyra Gitarrer" (Four Guitars) and we played over 400 concerts in Sweden and Denmark over the years. When Claes-Bertil moved to the north of Sweden and Jörgen Nilhamn started to play the lute instead, we split up and I found three guitarist in Denmark, Copenhagen to join me in a new quartet. We were all studying at The Royal Danish Academy of Music so it was easy to meet and practise every week. We changed the name to "Nordic Guitar Quartet" and during the 17 years we performed we had some members exchanged but on this CD we were: Torsten Borbye Nielsen (Denmark), Steffen Broe Christensen (Denmark), Dag-Egil Berge (Norway ) and Per-Olov Kindgren (Sweden). We had a great success and performed regulary. We toured, made some radio performances and also took part of the Danish National Radio Chamber music competitions two years in a row. We also had music composed for us by composer Finn Savery and others.
In 1991 we recorded a CD called "Images" during July 28-30 in Sorgenfri Church, Denmark (see picture).
The instruments we play on the CD:
1 Con Grosso Op.3 No.8: Allegro
At that time (1992) this was the most sold classical guitar CD in Denmark! Unfortunatley we never received any money from the sales and today I have no idea who has the rights. I think the rights were sold to different companies during the years. Right now a company called "Danica Records" or "OH-Music" has the distribution but is not printing it anymore. My plan is to be able to sell the mp3's here.
