Winner of the 2023 Norwegian Soloist Prize

​The concert is cancelled.

Tenor with lyric lieder.

Eirik Grøtvedt (1993–) was in August acclaimed the winner of the Norwegian Soloist Prize 2023. The prize consists of 100 000 kroner and two concert performances: a solo performance with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and this Bergen International Festival concert. It is the first time the prize has been awarded to a singer.

'Eirik Grøtvedt is fabulously skilled artist who has made his mark ever since he was a student,' the jury commented when awarding the prize, also remarking on the wide range of the tenor's repertoire.

Grøtvedt is known for the power of his voice and the sensitivity of his singing. He is especially fond of lieder. In Troldsalen he will perform songs by the Norwegian romantic composers Eyvind Alnæs, Agathe Backer Grøndahl and Edvard Grieg. He will also perform works by Lili Boulanger and Hugo Wolf, creating a time-picture of music in Norway and Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The tenor is accompanied by pianist Eirik Haug Stømner, with whom he has appeared at the Bergen International Festival before.

The Norwegian Soloist Prize was founded to support and promote young, gifted soloists. It has formerly been awarded to Tine Thing Helseth, Christian Ihle Hadland and Amalie Stalheim.

'I am proud and overwhelmed to be included in such a fantastic list of musicians,' says Eirik Grøtvedt.
