Geir Draugsvoll has earned worldwide recognition as one of the most important musicians and pioneers on his instrument, the bayan, with a repertoire ranging from arrangements of music by Bach, Mozart, Grieg and Stravinsky to contemporary classics such as Gubaidulina, Hosokawa, Berio, Nørgaard and Piazzolla. Through collaborations with many composers, he has given world premières of a large number of works, and works by Sofia Gubaidulina have a particularly prominent place in his concert programmes and discography. The collaboration between Draugsvoll and Gubaidulina culminated in 2009 when he gave the world première of her latest concerto, Fachwerk, which was dedicated to him.

Draugsvoll has performed throughout Europe, in the United States, China and Japan, appearing in major concert halls and in festivals, and collaborating with distinguished conductors. His extensive discography includes recordings for EMI, BIS, Simax, Delos, DaCapo, Dreyer-Gaido and many others. Geir Draugsvoll is Norwegian, born at Voss, and studied in Copenhagen with Mogens Ellegaard. In 1995 he was appointed associate professor at the Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen, where he now lives.
