Editor's info:
Arne Nordheim was Norway’s most significant and respected composer until his death in 2010, and one of the few figures in contem­porary western music who proved himself able to move beyond traditional harmonic re­lationships while maintaining a distinct ability to communicate widely through his striking, physical music. The Bergen Philharmonic has been far from immune to that music’s power, championing it throughout the composer’s lifetime and premiering his first orchestral work, Canzona, as well as his last, Fonos. It has given multiple performances of Nord­heim’s orchestral works and has recorded Tenebrae (Cello Concerto), Aurora and Wirkli­cher Wald. In 1992, Nordheim was the subject of a special focus at the Bergen International Festival, where the orchestra premiered Magic Island – a revised version of Be Not Afeard (the starting point for The Tempest).

About the artist:
Chief Conductor of the Bergen Philharmonic, Edward Gardner, has led the orchestra on multiple international tours. He is also Principal Conductor for the London Philharmonic Orchestra (from 2021) and takes over as Music Director at the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet in 2024.
In demand as a guest conductor, he conducts orchestras like the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Wiener Symphoniker, the Royal Opera House, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Music Director of English National Opera for ten years (2006–15), Gardner has an ongoing relationship with several opera houses; New York’s Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Chicago Lyric Opera, Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Opéra National de Paris.
Born in Gloucester in 1974, Edward was educated at Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Music. He went on to become Assistant Conductor of the Hallé and Music Director of Glyndebourne Touring Opera.
His many accolades include being named Royal Philharmonic Society Award Conductor of the Year (2008), an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera (2009) and receiving an OBE for Services to Music in Queen Elisabeth II’s Birthday honours.

Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, a Norwegian national orchestra, dates back to 1765. Ed­vard Grieg served as its artistic director from 1880 to 1882. Edward Gardner is Chief Con­ductor and Sir Mark Elder is the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor.
The Orchestra was nominated Orchestra of the Year 2020 by Gramophone and won two Gramophone Classical Music Awards in 2021: Recording of the Year and Opera Award Win­ner for Britten’s Peter Grimes. In recent years, the orchestra has played in the Concertge­bouw, at the BBC Proms, Wiener Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall, New York, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the Philhar­monie, Berlin.
The orchestra and Edward Gardner appeared at the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) (2017) and Royal Festival Hall (2019) with their critically acclaimed production of Peter Grimes. In 2022 the orchestra was invited back to the Edinburgh International Festival and re­ceived rave reviews for their performance of Strauss’ Salome. Edward Gardner and the Orchestra has released a series of record­ings, including a Grammy-nominated record­ing of Janáčeks Glagolitic Mass, Schönberg’s Gurre-Lieder, songs by Sibelius, Grieg’s Piano Concerto and Incidental music to Peer Gynt, Schoenberg’s Erwartung and Pelleas und Melisande, Britten’s Peter Grimes with Stuart Skelton and Erin Wall, songs by Britten and Canteloube with soprano Mari Eriksmoen and a CD with saxophonist Marius Neset.
