Vinding's music : Songs from the Alder thicket by Ketil Bjørnstad( )

7 editions published in 2012 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To celebrate the 60th birthday of Norwegian jazz pianist/composer/novelist and poet Ketil Bjornstad, ECM issues a double album as "literary soundtrack", its release also coinciding with the Norwegian publication of the one-volume edition of Bjornstad's highly-acclaimed fictional 'Vinding' trilogy, 'To Music', 'The River' and 'The Lady in the Valley'. After keeping his musical and writing activities entirely separate for decades, Renaissance Man Bjornstad dissolved the boundaries with his 'Vinding' books: "When I had the idea of writing a trilogy about the young piano student Aksel Vinding, I realised that I would have to grant music access to my world of writing. This felt surprisingly liberating, almost like a confession. Music is a powerful source of inspiration for many writers, and so it was for me when I relived, through the novels, my experiences as a young piano student in Oslo in the late 1960s and early 1970s." When the trilogy was completed, a concert of music referenced in Bjornstad's narrative was mounted in Oslo. A recording from that evening comprises volume two of the Vinding's Music set. Pianists Jie Zhang and Gunilla Süssman perform pieces by Beethoven, Chopin and Debussy, and each plays a movement from Piano Concertos by Rachmaninov or Ravel with the Norwegian Radio Orchestra conducted by Christian Eggen. Eggen is also heard as piano soloist in part of Mozart's Piano Concerto in A major, K488, while the disc ends with Samuel Barber's famous Adagio for strings. Disc one features Ketil Bjørnstad as improvising solo pianist over nine tracks, meditating upon themes related to his protagonist. It's in the role of improvising pianist that Bjornstad has mostly been heard on ECM, but he did begin his performing career as a teenage classical soloist, playing Bartok with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra..."--Publisher description

Liv Ullmann : Lebenswege by Ketil Bjørnstad( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Liv Ullmann viser nye og overraskende sider av seg selv i denne boken og reflekterer over linjene i sitt liv, menneskene hun har møtt, kampene hun har måttet kjempe, gledene og sorgene hun har hatt – og hvor i livet hun befinner seg nå. Liv Ullmann har tidligere skrevet Forandringen (1976) og Tidevann (1984), og begge ble internasjonale suksesser. Mye er skjedd i hennes liv siden den gang, og hun har i alle år skrevet skisser og notater med tanke på en bok nummer tre. Forfatteren Ketil Bjørnstad har fått innsikt i dette store materialet som også inkluderer dagbøker fra ungdomstiden og fra samlivet med Ingmar Bergmann. Møter mellom Ullmann og Bjørnstad har resultert i en åpenhjertig bok som gir et nærbilde av livet og tankene til en av våre store kunstnere. Ib
Life in Leipzig by Ketil Bjørnstad( Recording )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En kraftfull og poetisk plate fra to ruvende og allsidige musikere innen norsk musikkliv. Duoen Terje Rypdal og Kjetil Bjørnstad har samarbeidet i ulike konstellasjoner siden 1992. I 1999 begynte de å jobbe som duo, og siden det har dette samarbeidet vært det de har turnert mest med. "Life in Leipzig" er det første albumet som dokumenterer dette samarbeidet, hvor den relativt uvanlige kombinasjonen av forsterket elektronisk gitar og akustisk piano blir forent. Rypdal henter ut mer kraft og volum fra Bjørnstad enn det han vanligvis representerer, og Bjørnstads akkordstruktur gir melodikeren Rypdal rikelig med plass å boltre seg på. Rypdal selv mener dette opptaket er noe av det beste han har gjort som gitarist. Innspillingen er et livealbum spilt inn i operaen i Leipzig under Leipziger Jazztage oktober 2005
