Håvard Gimse

Håvard GimseJohn Andresen

Among Norwegian pianists, Håvard Gimse (b. 1966) is in a class of his own. There are few, if any, who have the same experience and breadth with a corresponding list of achieve­ments as concert musician and recording art­ist. Gimse has always been known for nuanced and sophisticated interpretations, for putting the smallest musical elements in their proper place in large musical structures, in addition to having an elegant concertizing style (well suit­ed to a composer like Poulenc). Gimse has a strong affinity for Norwegian and Nordic music and has recorded the complete piano works of Geirr Tveitt and Jean Sibelius (the latter win­ner of the Sibelius Prize, one of many music prizes he has received over the years). The list is long of orchestras, conductors and mu­sicians Gimse has worked with, and many of his collaborations have taken place while serv­ing as performing artistic director of the Oslo Chamber Music Festival. Gimse is in frequent demand as teacher of master classes in Nor­way and abroad, and he is presently Professor of Piano at the Norwegian Academy of Music.
