TRONDHEIMSOLISTENE - in folk style

In Nordic Melodies we find Grieg in passionate play with folk songs. The work sparkles with harmonies and expression, developing a whole story from just a few short stanzas. The Holberg Suite, loved for its beauty and feared for its challenges, is a fusion of European musical tradition and a genuine Norwegian sound palette. The Trondheim Soloists follow up with two brilliant soloists, Emilia Amper on nyckelharpa and Gjermund Larsen on fiddle, in newly commissioned music characterized by the same energy and tenderness. Wild nature and Nordic light are essential elements of the folk style. This lies at the core of the Trondheim Soloist's soul, a meeting between the musical playfulness and passion.

Suite "From Holberg's Time" op. 40
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Two Nordic Melodies op. 63
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

ABRÉGÉ - folk suite for nyckelharpa and string orchestra
Emilia Amper (1981-)

DIPLOM - folk suite for fiddle and string orchestra

The Trondheim Soloists are regarded one of the top chamber orchestras in the world. Their DIVERTIMENTI was also nominated for the 51st GRAMMY Awards as "Best Small Ensemble", "Best Engineered Album" and "Best Surround Sound Album" in 2008. Now IN FOLK STYLE sets a new standard for the performance of Edvard Grieg's "Suite From Holberg's Time" with the intense musical details revealed in this most spectacular surround sound recording ever made.
