The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir (Det Norske Solistkor) is one of Scandinavia’s foremost chamber choirs and one of Norway’s most eminent ensembles in any genre. The choir is equally at home in the classical/romantic repertoire and in contemporary music, making regular excursions into folk-derived music and National Romantic works.
The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir was founded in 1950 by the composer Knut Nystedt, who was its conductor for forty years. In 1990 he was succeeded by Grete Pedersen, who remains the choir’s artistic director to this day.
The choir comprises 26 highly trained singers, all potential soloists in various genres as well as fully embracing the art of ensemble singing. In recent years the choir has collaborated with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, RIAS Kammerchor, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. This is the Norwegian Soloists’ Choir’s fifth recording for BIS.
