Arctic Philharmonic



Based well north of the Arctic Circle, the Arctic Philharmonic (Nordnorsk Symfoniorkester) is the world’s northernmost orchestra, as well as one of the youngest. Since its foundation in 2009, the orchestra has become one of the largest and most active cultural institutions in northern Norway, where it has given numerous concerts. The Arctic Philharmonic has also made its presence felt internationally: in 2010 the orchestra, with its principal conductor Christian Lindberg, gave an acclaimed performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5 at the concert hall of the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, followed by a tour of China playing to full houses. The following year saw a recording of orchestral works by Ole Olsen, a contemporary of Edvard Grieg, released to considerable international acclaim [BIS-1968].

The orchestra has performed with soloists including Martin Fröst, Marianne Beate Kielland, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Øystein Baadsvik, Mikhail Simonyan, Eldbjørg Hemsing, Christian Ihle Hadland and Barbara Hendricks, and has commissioned works from composers such as Jon Øivind Ness, Torstein Aagaard-Nilsen, Jan Sandström, Arnt Håkon Ånesen, Jørgen Karlstrøm and Christian Lindberg. The Arctic Philharmonic also performs opera productions and appears in chamber ensemble formations under the name of Tromsø Chamber Orchestra and Bodø Sinfonietta.
