Get to know one of the most exciting young ensembles performing on the international stage.

It all started in 1988 with Trondheim’s Music Professor Bjarne Fiskum. His formidable ability to seek out talented young musicians, provide them with the skills to perform at their best and then to encourage them to give the maximum of themselves, became the driving force behind the early success of the ensemble. 

Trondheimsolistene is recognised for representing chamber music at the highest level. Passionate performances, innovation and innate musicianship are the watchwords and that is whether they are making critically acclaimed recordings, playing live from the Lofoten Islands to Berlin, or forging meaningful partnerships with musicians of all disciplines.

Geir Inge Lotsberg - Artistic Director -

Geir Inge Lotsberg (b. 1969) began his professional career at a young age and has distinguished himself as one of Norway’s most active chamber musicians. His relationship with Trondheimsolistene took off in 2005 when he was invited to be concertmaster in a series of tours and significant recordings.  Helping to mould the orchestra’s individual sound, and picking up many recording accolades along the way, he was appointed Artistic Director in 2017.  His skill as an orchestra leader continues to shape the orchestra’s direction and keep it at the forefront as one of the most creative ensembles of our time.
