The Trondheim Chamber Music Festival started today, and promises to give both visitors and local residents alike a varied programme for the rest of the week.
The festival’s philosophy is to promote this intimate musical collaboration at a high professional level, and will be presenting genres from early music, to contemporary, and rock.
Some of the well-known artists playing this year are Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, British violinist Daniel Hope, and cellist Anne Gastinel from France.
There will also be a chance to see a performance of Viennese composer H.K. Gruber’s ‘pandemonium’ “Frankenstein”.
The festival was established in 1996 and has since burst onto Norway‘s cultural scene with a fresh approach, featuring young artists.
It has also gathered friends and musicians from Trondheim’s music scene, and has evolved to one of the most innovative chamber music festivals in the world.
Moreover, the String Quartet Competition, which takes a place during the festival, will have artists from no fewer than 12 nationalities.
The musicians will be performing main works from the chamber music repertoire, and most concerts are free to the public.
The programme, together with details of opening times and ticket prices, can be found here.
Festival ends on Sunday 26 September.
