The world’s first music Blu-ray is made in Norway
TrondheimSolistene celebrate their 20th anniversary with a recording the sound quality of which is guaranteed to surpass anything you've ever heard before. DIVERTIMENTI was recorded by an ensemble on top form, and you can hear it. Every instrument is so clearly placed in the sound that you can actually envisage each individual musician. The recording, made in the wonderful acoustics of Selbu church in Norway, has a distinct, unique quality; making full use of the Blu-ray format this remarkable performance by TrondheimSolistene offers a superlative auditory experience. For those who haven't yet acquired the hardware we've included a hybrid SACD which will play on conventional stereos and computers. The Blu-ray is fully compatible with Sony's PlayStation3.
DIVERTIMENTI is produced by Lindberg Lyd and released by 2L, a Grammy nominated record company renowned internationally for its uncompromising focus on audiophile quality. 2L has previously released TrondheimSolistene's MOZART (2L38SACD) - a disc that was declared a "Record To Die For" by Stereophile magazine and which received a Norwegian recording industry Spellemann prize.
Music label 2L celebrates its fiftieth release with DIVERTIMENTI and is the first record company in the world to combine a hybrid SACD with a Blu-ray "music only" disc in the same package. Since all the various formats in this production are derived from the same high resolution source (5.1 channel DXD, 24 BIT 352.8kHz) the product, as well as the musical pleasure derived from it, sets a unique standard for equipment manufacturers and HiFi magazines the world over.

Asia tour with Anne-Sophie Mutter
TrondheimSolistene will soon be off on tour again, this time a major tour to 5 countries in the Far East with the incredible violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter! TrondheimSolistene will be giving 13 concerts in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong, performing in many of the most important venues across the region, including the new National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing!
This tour will once again reunite Ms Mutter with TrondheimSolistene, a highly successful collaboration which has already resulted in extensive tours to Europe and the USA as well as the release of the hugely popular Vivaldi Four Seasons album for DG. This time the programme will include Bach's Violin Concerto in E Major, BWV 1042 and Vivaldi's Four Seasons as well as Bartok's seminal work for string orchestra the Divertimento.
This tour will not only mark the Far East release of Ms Mutter's new CD with TrondheimSolistene for DG, of Bach Concerti, but also the release of TrondheimSolistene's own recording of works by Benjamin Britten, Grazyna Bacewicz, Terje Bjørklund and Bartok's Divertimento for 2L records. DIVERTIMENTI is the the first classical recording worldwide to be made available commercially in the ground breaking format of Blu-ray.
