TONE WIK - SOPRANO
Tone Wik was born in Oslo, and studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music. Later, she specialised in early music at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. Her repertoire spans music from the Middle Ages to contemporary music, but Tone Wik is especially noted for her interpretation of baroque music. Her performances have been reviewed in international newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone. Her two previous solo CDs, "Dolcissimo Sospiro" and "Bellezza Crudel" gained recognition in both Norwegian and international media.
Her singing of composers such as d’India and Monteverdi was among the best I have ever heard. (Andrew O’Connor International Record Review, June 2009). Formosa Mea is her third solo CD.
Tone Wik has performed as a soloist with conductors, musicians and early music ensembles such as Joshua Rifkin, Andrew Lawrence-King, Harry Christophers, Shalev Adel, Andrew Manze, Alfredo Bernardini, Ryo Terakado, Ronald Brautigam, The Bach Ensemble-New York, Il Gardellino, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Norwegian Baroque Orchestra, Concerto Copenhagen and Barokkanerne. She has performed at many international festivals such as Tage Alter Musik Regensburg, Festival van Vlaanderen Brugge - MAFestival, Händel-Festspiele Halle, Barockfest Münster, Israel Festival, Brezice Festival, Musicantica Trento, Stockholm Early Music Festival, Oslo Kammermusikkfestival, Bergen International Festival and Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival. She also works as a singing teacher and choir conductor.
