He was educated in Oslo, New York, Basel, and Amsterdam and is a veteran of the early music movement in Norway. He pursues a career as a soloist and as a member of various ensembles, but also finds time to make historical instruments and host early music programs for the Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK). He directs Pro Musica Antiqua, Oslo, an ensemble noted for its lively performances of medieval and renaissance music. With this ensemble he has recorded CDs with Scandinavian medieval and renaissance music and performed in many European countries.
