Biography

 

Vebjørn Anvik, piano
Sølve Sigerland, violin
Ellen Margrete Flesjø, cello


Grieg Trio was founded in 1987 by Vebjørn Anvik (piano), Sølve Sigerland (violin) and Ellen Margrete Flesjø (cello), and the line-up of the group has remained unchanged ever since. Herein lies perhaps one of the reasons behind the ensemble's status today as a leading international piano trio.

Following their successful debut the trio went on to study with András Mihály in Budapest, and later with Norbert Brainin of the Amadeus Quartet and Eli Goren of the Allegri Quartet.

Grieg Trio's international reputation is due in part to a series of recordings on SIMAX, Virgin and EMI featuring works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Smetana and Shostakovich; their renown also owes much to extensive concert tours and appearances at such prestigious venues as London's Wigmore Hall, Châtelet in Paris, Berlin Konzerthaus, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Sale Verdi in Milan, and New York's Weill Hall Carnegie Hall.

Grieg Trio have received numerous prizes for their performances, including the prestigious Parkhouse Award, which secured the trio a series of concerts in London; first prize in the Colmar International Chamber Music Competition in France in 1989; and a Norwegian Spellemann prize for best classical recording (Dvorak piano trios) in 2004. Alongside performances and recordings of much of the standard repertoire Grieg Trio has commissioned, performed and recorded works by leading contemporary composers including Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Erkki-Sven Tüür, and Lasse Thoresen. From 2004-2009 Grieg Trio were artistic directors of the acclaimed Stavanger International Chamber Music Festival in Norway.
