Oyvind Gimse

Øyvind Gimse is Artistic Leader of the Trondheim Soloists and a distinguished cellist and orchestral leader. After studies with Walter Nothas, Frans Helmerson and William Pleeth, he held the position of solo cellist in the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra for seven years. He has toured as a soloist with the Trondheim Soloists in Norway, Britain, Italy and Spain. His performances with Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Trondheim Soloists throughout Europe and at the Carnegie Hall in 1999, as well as the recordings with her and the ensemble for DG, have received the highest critical acclaim. In addition his own work as Artistic Leader of the Trondheim Soloists has resulted in the group receiving no less than five GRAMMY® nominations for their last two recordings. In 2004 Gimse joined Sofia Gubaidulina as soloist in her work On the Edge of the Abyss at the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival and during the world première concert performances of Fachwerk with Geir Draugsvoll and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, he was invited to performe the solo cello part. Since 1997 Gimse has held the position of Professor of Strings at the Institute for Music (NTNU) in Trondheim. He has also taught elsewhere in Scandinavia, Poland, Vietnam and South Africa. In recent years he has, under the guidance of Jorma Panula, developed his conducting skills as a natural extension of his leadership rôle in the Trondheim Soloists.
