Winner of the Eurovision Young Musicians 2012 contest, and a current BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Norwegian violist Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad is one of today’s most exciting young classical players, and one of the fastest-emerging viola soloists and chamber musicians of his generation.

He makes his International Festival debut alongside German pianist and regular recital partner David Meier, in a rich collection of works showcasing the virtuoso brilliance and lyrical mellowness to his instrument – from the diabolical virtuosity of Tartini’s ‘Devil’s Trill’ Sonata to the dramatic emotional journey of Franck’s A major Sonata, by way of the tales of fantasy and imagination in Schumann’s fairytale Märchenbilder, and a brand new piece from young Norwegian composer Peder Barratt-Due.
