Musikkritikk = Music criticism

Musikkritikk.no writes in-depth criticism about all Norwegian records in the genres Classical Music and Contemporary Music.

The site is run by me, Magnus Andersson, who works full-time as a music critic. Thanks to a generous two-year scholarship from Arts Council Norway, I can devote half my time to Musikkritikk.no

Music Critic

Magnus Andersson

Short bio

I have been a leading music critic in Norway since 2003. In 2015 I began working as chief critic for classical and contemporary music in Klassekampen/Musikkmagasinet. Before this I wrote ten years for Morgenbladet. I have written around 700 articles in papers and magazines.

I have two master’s degrees, one in piano performance and one as a musicologist. I also have a PhD degree and I have worked as a senior research fellow at The Norwegian Academy of Music.

  • Klassekampen is a left-wing paper with the best coverage of cultural affairs in Norway. I write in the weekly supplement: Musikkmagasinet.
  • Morgenbladet is a weekly paper read by highly educated people.
