Carl Petter Opsahl – Music for Life

Hi – and welcome to my site! I play music for life.

Music has been part of my life as long as I can remember. Playing music has brought me to many parts of the world. Maybe you can hear that in my playing, too? A little bit of blues, a little bit of chorino, a little bit of klezmer – and a whole lot of jazz and music from the valleys of my home country Norway.

I play clarinets and write music. On this site you can find out more about me, my music and projects. I will keep you posted on upcoming concerts and new projects. I regularily post freshly made music just for you, and you can even download sheet music for my most popular compositions.

My latest album, «Kyrkja», features guitarist Oddrun Lilja and bass player Ellen Brekken. It was named one of the best albums of the year by Europe Jazz Network for 2022. It is available on all streaming platforms, including Spotify, iTunes, YouTube and Tidal. Here you’ll also find my previous recordings.
