Eivind Groven (1901–1977) — Bryllupsmarsj (Wedding March) (1961/62) for organ

Eivind Groven (1091–1977) was a Norwegian composer particularly noted for his combination of Nordic folk music influence with experiments in microtonal tuning systems. Groven was raised in a family with strong backgrounds in folk music, and he learned to play the hardanger fiddle. Beginning in 1938, Groven began his work with just intonation and microtonality, culminating in the construction in 1952 of a special organ that by the presence of extra sets of pipes allowed for pure tuning in all keys. Groven’s music style draws strongly on his folk music background and especially the distinctive sounds of the harmonies of the hardanger fiddle and the langeleik (the Norwegian cither). To this is added a sense of mixed modality and metamorphic (fortspinnung) formal designs, resulting in a personal musical idiom.
