Description

During the days of the festival top-class musicians will play together in Stavanger and share their joy with the audience.

Many of the world's elite musicians have performed at the festival, quite a few of them more than once, including pianists Martha Argerich, Jean-Jacques Thibaudet, Boris Berezovsky, Lars Vogt, Stephen Kovacevich, Kathryn Stott, Yefim Bronfman; violinists Sergei Stadler, Leila Josefowicz, Leonidas Kavakos, Renaud Capuçon; singers Stephan Genz and Dietrich Henschel; flautist Patrick Gallois and clarinettist Michael Collins. Added to these are the world’s elite viola players, in order of appearance: Yuri Bashmet, Tabea Zimmermann, Nabuko Imai, Kim Kashkashian. Renowned musicians perform together with artists ranging from the young and promising to the truly great, of the calibre of violinist Priya Mitchell and pianists Alexander Melnikov and Mihaela Ursuleasa.



Every year, at least one string quartet takes part in the festival. Again, the list spans from young and emerging quartets to veterans such as the Borodin Quartet.



"Of all the beautiful places we have been, this is one of the most enchanting” declared the Borodin Quartet. “The scenery, the atmosphere, the closeness to the water, the boat trip, everything is a great experience."
