Notes & Reviews:

"Eirik the Viking" has been the stage name of Eirik Gjerdevik since his student days, and is also the name of his new CD, with a title track composed by Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, with whom he has collaborated for years.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The very fine Stavanger Brass Band is also heard in a couple of swinging original pieces - Lars-Erik Gudim's Tuba Libre and Frode Thingnaes's Tuba Concertino - plus two arrangements of traditional Norwegian tunes ('Torn- Erik's Song' and Ole Bull's 'Melancolie'). The Bergen Tuba Quartet plays in three show-off selections.
