Instruments Orchestra

TrondheimSolistene (The Trondheim Soloists) is one of Norway’s most exciting young ensembles performing on the international stage. Thanks to the orchestra’s dedication, commitment and enthusiasm it has quickly established itself as an innovative chamber orchestra with invitations to collaborate with artists of the highest level across a broad range of genres.

Formed in 1988 by Bjarne Fiskum, TrondheimSolistene was for many years the main forum for professional concert training in Trondheim. The orchestra announced its arrival on the international stage in 1990 with a rapturously received debut in London and further international concerts followed confirming the orchestra’s reputation. In 1999 the orchestra was invited to accompany the violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter on her new recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons for Deutsche Grammophon, thus initiating an important artistic collaboration for both groups. In 2001 the orchestra made its Carnegie Hall debut with Mrs Mutter followed by further concerts in Washington, Boston, Chicago and Ann Arbor with the violinist Joshua Bell. In 2007 TrondheimSolistene toured Germany, Spain and Ireland with Mrs Mutter and in 2008 the orchestra accompanies her once more on an extensive tour of the Far East with concerts in China, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan, in addition to performances at the Lucerne Festival.

The orchestra regularly performs with many of Scandinavia’s leading artists, and recent collaborations have included concerts with Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Anders Tomter, Arve Tellefsen, Solveig Kringelborn and Ole Edvard Antonsen. The orchestra is a leading advocate of Scandinavian music, and regularly includes Scandinavian music in its programming, recordings and commissions. The Orchestra’s remarkable versatility enables them to perform a broad range of musical genres and styles from baroque to tango, jazz, pop and rock.

TrondheimSolistene are prolific and award winning recording artists in 2008 counting more than 25 recordings. Recording projects include Mozart’s Violin Concerti for 2L with Marianne Thorsen as soloist, which won the Norwegian Recording Industry Prize as best classical recording in 2006. US magazine Stereophile declared the album “a Record to Die For”. A new CD with Mrs Mutter featuring Bach Concerti is due for release by Deutsche Grammophon in the Spring of 2008. TrondheimSolistene enjoys partnership with StatoilHydro, Storebrand Insurance Services, Klipp&Lim Media and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, which graciously co-provides the orchestra’s concert venue, Dokkhuset.
