Rosendal Chamber Music Festival 2020

Guro Kleven Hagen

Biography

The Norwegian violinist Guro Kleven Hagen is known as one of the most exciting young Scandinavian musicians of today.

She has already appeared as a soloist with many European orchestras, with conductors such as Vasily Petrenko, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Christian Vasques, Johannes Gustavsson, Christian Arming, Cornelius Meister and Eivind Aadland.

As a chamber musician, Guro has worked closely with Janine Jansen, Leif Ove Andsnes, Marianna Shirinyan, Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad and Håvard Gimse. She is a regular guest to many of Scandinavia’s leading chamber festivals and has been the artistic director of Valdres Summer festival for the past 5 years. She also was part of establishing the Edvard Munch Ensemble – an ensemble that vividly explores the ”normal boundaries” of classical music.

 

Guro plays on a C. Bergonzi, also known as the “Kreisler-Bergonzi” kindly on loan from Dextra Musica.
