International Chamber Music Festival

Overview

Many of the great composers have created some of their very best works in the chamber format. Throughout these years, the public in Stavanger has learned to appreciate this rich repertoire, and its power to move deeply when it is interpreted by outstanding artists. The festival has expanded the knowledge of classical pearls, opened for meetings with less well-known music, and in addition nurtured a culture where contemporary music has its natural place. The result is a public which immediately appreciates the superb moments. The exchange works both ways, as the musicians feel the listeners’ intensive attention and appreciation.

Each year, at least 20-30 artists participate. Truls Mørk brought in mostly soloists, creating ever-new groups. The Grieg Trio chose more ensembles, at the same time continuing the tradition of creating new combinations. In contrast to the polished interpretations of the permanent ensembles such groups can create a strong feeling of the spontaneous, the unique just-here-and-now.

Clearly, the ICMF is happy to receive artists who want to come back, but also finds it important to bring in names that are new in Norway – at the same time, always including some of the foremost young Norwegian talent. For several of these musicians, the festival has served as jumping-off ground for new collaborations and international engagements. Since 1996, the festival has also contributed in another way to the growth of new talent: young musicians from all over the world attend the master classes of ISA, our International Summer Academy, to learn more about music and dance, working for a fortnight with experienced practitioners. In addition to their classes they can attend all concerts and experience their models at close quarters.
