The distinguished TrondheimSoloists exude immense passion, perfection and intensity in their musical foundations.

In 2018, the orchestra entered a multi-season artistic partnership with award-winning American cellist, Alisa Weilerstein. The first part of the collaboration is a recording of Haydn's two Cello Concertos and Schønberg's Verklärte Nacht. These three major works make up the exciting program that you will hear on this concert in the Queens Hall.  

Alisa Weilerstein comments on the collaboration by saying 'I could not be happier; to enter into an artistic partnership with Trondheim soloists is very special to me. I could not ask for more engaged artists to cooperate with. Our chemistry was clear from the very first tones we played together ... "

The orchestra's energetic musicality and pure musical happiness is contagious. The orchestra has had previous partnerships in the past; Anne-Sophie Mutter has had a fruitful collaboration with them, resulting in numerous concerts, tours and recordings beginning from 1999 and continuing for several years. The TrondheimSoloists have performed concerts with a large selection of leading soloists, in not only the classical music world, but also soloists from jazz, folk music, rock and pop.

Programme:

Joseph Haydn: Celloconcerto no. 2 i D-major (23 min.)
Joseph Haydn: Celloconcerto no 1 i C-major (22 min.)
-       Intermission   -
Arnold Schoenberg: Transfigured Night (first string orchestra version), rev. 1943 (29 min.)


In the singing lines of this hypnotic work, the Trondheim ensemble manage the wonderful feat of being throbbingly intense and meticulously exact at the same time, and this performance knocked me flat. If it’s something they do put in the water, I’d like to get it bottled
