Scandinavian realms have always been a special inspiration to any creator. Whether we think of the fjords, Aurora Borealis or Santa Claus, Scandinavia is an area that reminds us of the beauty and diversity of our planet.
The Trondheim Soloists Quartet will present Norwegian opuses that will transpose us into the world of the polar circle, at the place they call ‘home’. The common ground with Romania? Classix and the values we share - interdisciplinary work, passion for nature, people and art and a permanent search to improve international communication.
Edvard Grieg (1843 - 1907) - String Quartet No. 2 in F major, EG 117 (unfinished)
Following his time in Copenhagen in the second half of his life, Grieg never found the time and mood to complete this second string quartet.
Alfred Janson (1937 - 2019) - String Quartet (1978)
Jazz elements form the basis for many of his works, although Janson's most important influences are drawn from so-called neo-expressionism. A strongly lyrical element pervade, Janson's work and gives his music human warmth and expressive power.
The Trondheim Soloists (Trondheimsolistene) from Norway is one of the most exciting young ensembles performing on the international stage.
February 2011. A group of classical musicians from Norway is back at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, sharing the red carpet with the greatest names in musical entertainment. They’re not from a powerhouse orchestra in Oslo or Bergen, but from a picturesque town hemmed in by mountains and a fjord. They’re the Trondheim Soloists, accepting their fifth Grammy nomination in three years.
It all started in 1988. The ensemble for training young string players soon became known for its energy and warmth. On its first foreign tour, London audiences wouldn’t stop clapping. The Trondheim Soloists turned professional, but the spirit of apprenticeship stayed: student musicians became part of its constitution. Trondheim, though, always shines through. They call it ‘the city with a heart’. And that’s precisely what you hear in the unmistakable Trondheim sound.
