The concert master of the Norwegian Opera & Ballet and a passionate pianist.
Camilla Kjøll, violin, has a busy schedule: she is into her first season as concert master of Lucerne Symphony Orchestra in Switzerland and is well established as a chamber musician and orchestral leader. Since 2012, the year after her most recent Bergen International Festival performance, she has been first concert master at the Norwegian Opera & Ballet. She also plays in the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, of which the fortieth anniversary celebrations in 2017 include three concerts in Logen during this year's festival.
Camilla Kjøll's partner is pianist Gunilla Süssmann from Bergen, who has performed at the Bergen International Festival on several occasions, including an appearance as the soloist in Grieg's A minor Concerto in 2004. She plays with great virtuosity, sensitivity and imagination, and her extremely personal and passionate interpretations create a unique contact with her audiences. Her great love of chamber music is evident, particularly in her longstanding collaboration with cellist Tanja Tetzlaff.
At Lysøen their programme includes chamber works by Bull, Szymanowski, Chausson and Ravel.
