Oslo Sinfonietta  

ensemble

Oslo Sinfonietta, Norway’s oldest running contemporary ensemble, was established by the Norwegian composer Asbjørn Schaathun in 1986. The ensemble is under the leadership of Christian Eggen, who is artistic director and chief conductor. Oslo Sinfonietta comprises leading freelance musicians and members from some of Norway’s most prominent orchestras, including The Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Robe de soirée, The Norwegian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and The Norwegian Radio Orchestra. This ensures that the ensemble has the quality and flexibility that modern repertoire demands. Among Oslo Sinfonietta’s numerous recordings are Birds and Bells, with music by Bent Sørensen, and Eivind Buene’s Objects of Desire. In 1999, Oslo Sinfonietta was awarded the prestigious Spellemannspris, Norway’s equivalent of a Grammy, for Boyl, with music by Rolf Wallin. Oslo Sinfonietta performs regularly at Norwegian and international festivals. Highlights include appearances at The Casa da Música Festival in Porto, The Présence Festival in Paris and The Venice Biennale.
