Biography

Dag Arnesen, pianist/composer, was born and raised in Bergen, a beautiful city located on the west coast of Norway.

He started classical piano lessons when he was seven-years-old and at the age of sixteen appeared as a soloist with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, at “De Unges Konsert” (“Young Talent’s Concert”) playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.1. He was educated at the Music Conservatory in Bergen where he studied classical piano with Jirij Hlinka. However, as time passed, jazz became his main interest.

Dag started his professional career as a musician at Bergen’s main theatre, Den Nationale Scene.
Since the mid-seventies, he has led many jazz groups: trios, quartets, quintets, a sextet and a septet. He has also led larger constellations including a nine- and a thirteen-piece band. Almost all of the music performed by these groups was composed and arranged by Dag. He has often been commissioned to write music for big band, choirs and various ensembles and has composed music for three films.

He has released nine CD/LPs as a leader and has been a sideman on many other recordings.
