Ingrid Andsnes


Ingrid Andsnes (1978 Karmøy, Norway) is a highly accomplished pianist and one of Norwayʼs most endearingly passionate musicians. Her love for music is just as inspiring as her joy in performing is striking. She has studied with Professor Joan Havill at Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and with Professor Jiri Hlinka at Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo. She has won both national and international prizes, among them, the Janácek Prize at the Firkusny Competition in The Czech Republic in 2003. Andsnes had received several prestigious scholarships, among them a three year scholarship from the Norwegian Stateʼs Artist Fund.

Ingrid has performed as a soloist with several Norwegian Orchestras, among them the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, and in 2010 she recorded Mozart’s piano concerto no. 12 with the Telemark Chamber Orchestra.
In collaboration with the finest of Norway’s musicians, including Solveig Kringelborn, Arve Tellefsen, Håvard Gimse and The Norwegian Soloist Choir, Ingrid Andsnes has given a remarkable contribution to concert life both nationally and internationally. Being a popular festival musician, Andsnes has contributed at the largest classical music festivals in Norway.

In recent years Ingrid Andsnes has enjoyed exploring the pianistic role outside traditional boundaries of classical music, such as Ørjan Matreʼs “Duet for solo piano” – a work for piano and contemporary dancer written especially for her. In 2012 she played Beethovenʼs monumental “Diabelli Variations” in the play “33 Variations” by Moisés Kaufman in the production staged at Det Norske Teateret in Oslo. In 2015 Andsnes released this work coupled with Lars Petter Hagen’s ‘Diabelli Cadenza’ on the album ’33 + 1’, released with a concert in Carnegie Hall and hailed by reviewers and audiences alike.
