Trondheimsolistene - orchestra

Passion. Perfection. Raw intensity.
With these fundamentals, the chamber orchestra TrondheimSolistene (The Trondheim Soloists) is carving out its own musical territory.

The orchestra was founded in 1988 to give the best music students in Trondheim an opportunity to play together and to gain concert experience.
It has since established itself as one of the most distinguished ensembles in Norway, and has won international recognition for its own distinctively open and clear orchestral sound, described by the British music magazine "Classic FM" as "The Trondheim Sound".

Teamwork and a lively musical inquisitiveness are core values, and under the direction of cellist and music teacher Øyvind Gimse, who has been artistic director since 2002, the orchestra's musicians have continued to develop the virtuosity and confidence that allow them to play what they want, when they want, and to take chances rather than play safe.
