Clarinetist Marianne Gythfeldt, a native of Norway, has distinguished herself in chamber music, orchestral and contemporary music performance on the international stage. She received her Bachelor of Music at Eastman School of Music, and a Master of Music at Stony Brook University, where she studied with Charles Neidich.
As a New York City resident, Ms. Gythfeldt became the clarinetist of Ensemble Sospeso, Zephyros Winds, Absolute Ensemble and the Naumburg Award-winning New Millennium Ensemble, as well as a frequent participant in concerts with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Concert series and tours with these ensembles have taken her to Europe, Australia and Japan in collaboration with internationally acclaimed artists such as Paquito D’Rivera and Joe Zawinul. After 15 years of professional life in New York City, she came to the University of Delaware, where she is Associate Professor of clarinet and is building the clarinet performance and chamber music programs.
Currently, Ms. Gythfeldt is considered one of the premier performers and promoters of avant-garde and experimental contemporary music. Highlights of recent seasons include a recital at the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music in Bowling Green Ohio, a premiere performance of Revolve at the 2010 SEAMUS conference in St. Cloud, Minn., and a command performance with Zephyros Winds at the National Centre for Performing Arts in Beijing. Ms. Gythfeldt can be heard on recordings by CBS Masterworks, CRI, Albany, Koch and Mode Records; the 2005 Albany Records release of two solo clarinet pieces by Robert Morris; and as lead clarinet in the new 2010 release of Joe Zawinul with Absolute Ensemble.
