Marius Noss Gundersen Marius Noss Gundersen

Norwegian guitarist Marius Noss Gundersen acquired his education at the Agder Conservatory of Music and the Norwegian State Academy of Music. He studied Advanced Instrumental Studies at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, being the only guitarist to receive a full scholarship for the academic year 2000/2001. He is also holding a Master's degree in Performing Arts from the University of Agder. Marius has had the privilege of receiving tutelage under teachers such as Per Kjetil Farstad, Per Skareng, Sven Lundestad and Robert Brightmore, and has participated in master classes with some of the world’s most prominent guitarists, such as David Russell, Roland Dyens, Marco Socias, the Assad brothers, Peter Sculthorpe and Carlos Bonell. In addition to guitar studies Marius has had the pleasure of studying composition with Johan Varen Ugland, Kjell Habbestad and Asbjørn Schaathun and has received great recognition for his compositions around the world.


“Gundersen has a wonderful feel for the Bossa Nova rhythms of Brazil. His touch is so light and delicate, and his rhythms are so subtle and supple, that I’m sure he has made many native Brazilian guitarists jealous.”

“He shows great talent in composing. His “5 Cenas Brasileiras” was especially nice to listen to. 5 miniatures that really pleases the ear.” 6 of 6 stars, Smaalenenes avis

It is rare to hear a band who appear so respectful for each member’s musicality and in that way achieve a unique togetherness. This is candy for the ear.” - Gjengangeren

“Gundersen has an exceptional purity of technique and effortless virtuosity.” -

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
