with Amalie Stalheim
Bergen has a long tradition of fostering musical talent, not least within classical music. In this concert you can become acquainted with twelve of the young Bergen musicians who have already become members of orchestras and ensembles country-wide, along with twelve of those who hope to do so in the future. Combined they constitute the string orchestra Camerata Bergen.
This collaboration is organised by the Bergen Arts School, the Bergen International Festival, the music department at Langhaugen Upper Secondary School and the Barratt Due Music Institute, and offers to the most highly motivated string students the opportunity to combine extra tuition, ensemble playing, theory and encounters with experienced musicians. The venture has given outstanding results.
The evening's soloist is cellist Amalie Stalheim (born 1993), who has won not only the Norwegian but also the Swedish soloist prize. The ensemble is led by violinist Rasmus Hella Mikkelsen (born 1998), who is a master's student at the Norwegian Academy of Music and an intern with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra. Rasmus recently gained a place in Dirigentforum, the elite programme of Dirigentløftet for conductors, run by Talent Norge under the auspices of the Norwegian Ministry of Culture and Equality.
