Notes & Reviews:

The Norwegian Radio Orchestra presents three new works by composer Jon Oivind Ness - all of them black comedies and embodying a kind of Brutalistic Impressionism. Much of Ness' music has a humorous streak, though the humor is sometimes rather black or ironic, and, in recent years, his humor has changed to something entirely more serious, which he labels 'dark ambient.' Although he regards all three concertos as reflecting a transitional phase between humor and seriousness, the instrumentations are different and individual in character.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
If I gave out a "Best Title of the Year" award, John Bivind Ness's record would be an early nominee. Fierce Kentucky Mothers of Doom (2006) is a double trombone concerto. It is joined by a concerto for piano, Sunburst (2007), and one for amplified guitar, Bury My Heart at Katnosa (2005). These are concertos in the sense that there is a lead instrument that is more prominent than the ones in the ensemble. Nothing is of poor quality. Harmony is all over the map.
