In 1979 I founded a classical guitar quartet with three Swedish guitarists. We called ourselves "Fyra Gitarrer" (Four Guitars) and we played more than 400 concerts in Sweden and Denmark over the years. We split in 1988 and instead, I found three guitarist in Denmark to join me in a new quartet. We were all studying at The Royal Danish Academy of Music so it was easy to meet and practise every week. We changed the name to "Nordic Guitar Quartet" During the 17 years we performed, we had some members exchanged but on this CD we are: Torsten Borbye Nielsen (Denmark), Steffen Broe Christensen (Denmark), Dag-Egil Berge (Norway) and Per-Olov Kindgren (Sweden). We had a great success and performed regulary. We toured, made some radio performances and also took part in the Danish National Radio Chamber music competition two years in a row. We also had music composed for us by composer Finn Savery and othersSorgenfri Church.

In 1991 we recorded a CD called "Images" during July 28-30 in Sorgenfri Church, Denmark (see picture).
