- Souvenir: Part II
- (Trondheim Soloists (Trondheimsolistene))
- Format: LP
On this 180g vinyl release, artistic director +ÿyvind Gimse and his associate Geir Inge Lotsberg initially chose two pieces that represent, in their opinion, "the most beautiful music ever composer for the string orchestra": Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence and his Serenade for Strings. Aiming for a 90 minute program, this left 30 minutes to record. TrondheimSolistene and 2L asked fans worldwide what they would like to hear. The majority voted Nielsen's Suite Opus 1, a little gem that would exploit the Trondheim Soloists' singular way with Nordic repertoire. TrondheimSolistene are regarded as one of the top chamber orchestras in the world. Their DIVERTIMENTI and FOLK STYLE were both nominated for a total of five American GRAMMY Awards in categories "Best Small Ensemble", "Best Engineered Album" and "Best Surround Sound Album".
