Biographies


Ludvig Gudim (b. 1999) started playing the violin at the age of five. He has won a number of national and international awards, including Juilliard's prestigious soloist competition and the Norwegian Soloist Prize. 


He has won a number of national and international awards, including Juilliard's prestigious soloist competition and the Norwegian Soloist Prize. He has also been a prize winner in the Princess Astrid International Violin Competition and the Menuhin Competition. He has participated in a number of prestigious programs and master classes, including Verbier Festival Academy in Switzerland and the Crescendo program. He has been a soloist with several national and international orchestras, including the Oslo Philharmonic, the WDR Symphonie-Orchester Köln, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, the Brussels Chamber Orchestra and the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra. Ludvig plays on a 1710 Antonio Stradivarius on loan from Anders Sveaas' Almennyttige Fond.


Sander Tingstad works as a violinist in the Arctic Philharmonic in Tromsø, and is also active as a chamber musician and soloist across several different genres. In the spring of 2022, he released his debut album Origins on Simax Classics, which explores the boundaries between folk music and classical, and which has received fantastic reviews. He obtained his master's degree from the Norwegian Academy of Music and has a background as a folk musician with a junior title “Norwegian Master” on fiddle. He has participated in a number of courses and master classes at home and abroad with musicians such as Almita Vamos, Vilde Frang, Benjamin Schmid, Isabelle van Keulen, Hatto Beyerle, Emerson String Quartet, Takacs Quartet and the Danish String Quartet.

The Norwegian viola player Eivind Ringstad (b. 1994) made his breakthrough after winning first prize in the EBU's competition for young musicians in 2012, and made his debut with the Oslo Philharmonic and conductor Eivind Aadland one year later. In the period 2016-2018, Eivind was elected to the BBC's New Generation Artists Scheme, which led to several engagements in the UK, including a debut concert at Wigmore Hall. Eivind is a very active chamber musician and has performed at festivals such as the Bergen International Festival, Oslo Chamber Music Festival, Utrecht Chamber Music Festival, Cheltenham Festival, Koblenz International Music Festival and Edinburgh International Festival. Eivind started playing the violin at the age of 5. He switched to viola as the main instrument nine years later and completed his studies in 2017 at the Barratt Due Music Institute with Prof. Soon-Mi Chung Barratt-Due. Eivind plays on a viola built Andrea Guarneri in 1676 also known as "Conte Vitale" generously lent from Dextra Musica.

The cellist Sverre Barratt-Due (b. 1991) studied cello at the Norwegian Academy of Music with Prof. Truls Mørk as his teacher, and completed his master's degree with his debut concert in University Hall in 2016. He regularly plays in the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and is a permanent member of the string quartet Testosterone and Edvard Munch Ensemble. Since 2017, Sverre has been employed by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation as deputy group leader.

With the highest honors from the London Royal Academy of Music, Thormod Rønning Kvam (b. 1991) is a pianist with an international commitment to innovate and make the place of classical music greater in society. As a performer in London's Wigmore Hall, the Main Stage at the Norwegian Opera, the Grünewald Hall in Stockholm Concert Hall, the Harpa in Reykjavik and at the Hardanger Music Festival have been among the highlights from recent years. He has received a number of awards and recognitions for his work, this includes Musician Scholarship of the Year from Forsberg's and Aulie's endowment and the highly coveted Dobloug Scholarship. He is the artistic director of the Aula series, a monthly chamber music initiative in the University's auditorium in Oslo and at the cultural destination Ramme i Hvitsten. He completed his bachelor's studies at the Barratt Due Music Institute under Prof. Jiří Hlínka and completed his master's and diploma at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Prof. Christopher Elton and Diana Ketler.
