Women on the verge – by Lydia Hoen Tjore, soprano and Ingrid Andsnes, piano.
Both artists have made their Bergen International Festival solo debut, and both were well received. Now they return as a duo with a programme in Troldsalen depicting women from the history of music. What binds these numerous women together is that they have broken boundaries, stood out from the crowd or challenged the norms of society in some way.
Lydia Hoen Tjore, who comes from Radøy, a short drive north of Bergen, is currently a second-year student at the Royal Danish Opera Academy, where she was one of the youngest students ever to gain a place. At the age of 21 she is already an experienced soloist, with many stage performances and awards to her name.
Ingrid Andsnes, who comes from Karmøy between Bergen and Stavanger, is also an award-winner. Since making her debut in Carnegie Hall in 2015, she has extended her role as a pianist beyond the limits of traditional classical music, including performing several works written specially for her.
During this year's Bergen International Festival you can also experience Lydia and Ingrid with the young Nordlyd Quartet in a totally Finnish programme.
