Collection: KRISTIN FOSSHEIM piano

Kristin Fossheim ( 1963-) grew up in the beautiful city of Trondheim where she had her first musical upbringing. Her first performances as teenager included several concerts with Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue and Beethovens pianoconcerto in C major, with Kåre Opdal as conductor. The Trondheim municipal  School of Performing Arts provided a great environment for chamber music groups and Fossheim had many opportunities to perform both Lieder and chamber music, also in the summer courses that were held there.

She later studied at the Norwegian Acadamy of Music (NMH) and took her Diploma at Utrechts Conservatorium, before starting as collaborative pianist at Østlandets Musikkonservatorium, later NMH. At the time of her studies she also had the opportunity to play as soloist with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic and Stavanger Symphony Orchestra. In the early beginnings of her career she educated wind players and played extensively with flutists, oboists, bassoonists and clarinet players in a period lasting about 15 years. From the year 2007 Fossheim has devoted most of her time to viola players, cellists and singers, and is currently today working with hornists at NMH. 

Fossheim enjoys working with young people at summer-courses both in Trondheim and for the group Oslo Kammerakademi, and Fossheim has played in numerous festivals in Norway.  Fossheim's interests includes performance practice in Beethoven, resulting in two CD´s for the label 2L, with her partners Bjørn Solum, cello, and Steinar Granmo Nilsen, natural horn. The CD Early Romantic Horn-sonatas from 2014, include the first horn sonatas to be composed after Beethovens Op. 17. and her latest CD The Horn in Romanticism, both with Steinar Granmo Nilsen, on natural horn and fortepiano, show the span of a century regarding the development of the natural horn and this instrument´s major repertoire, with works such as Schumann's Adagio and Allegro, Czernys Andante and Polacca and Dukas' Villanelle. These chamber music records have come out of a long standing collaboration between Steinar Granmo Nilsen and Kristin Fossheim.  

Her focus over the last years has been on romantic performance practice, a work for which she was mentioned as best musical research of the year, in the year 2013 in the paper Klassekampen. Fossheim enjoys playing chamber music and Lieder, and has also created two concert series together with Cecilie Cathrine Ødegården, soprano, at Høvik near Oslo, where she lives. Fossheim teaches piano at the Bærum municipal school of performing arts.
