Torun Stavseng is a cellist interested in a wide span of music, active as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. After studies at Barratt Dues Music Institute, the Hochschule für Musik, Stuttgart, and the Royal College of Music, Stockholm, Torun was awarded the Swedish Royal Academy of Music’s honorary prize in 2010 for her performance of Britten ?s Cello Symphony with the Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. In the same year she was awarded the Young Swedish Soloist Prize and offered the post of principal cellist of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra where she worked until 2012. She has also performed with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra and the Oslo Camerata. In 2008 Torun established her duo partnership with Swedish pianist Anna Christensson, with whom she performs extensively across Scandinavia and Europe. In 2012, with the London-based cellists and composers Gregor Riddell and Colin Alexander, Torun formed Tre Voci, which explores music ranging from transcriptions of renaissance choral works to new commissions. Together with violinist Liv Hilde Klokk and violist Ida Bryhn, they formed Trio Virgo, and gave performances of Mozart ?s Divertimento for string trio, a work they have recorded on the 2L label.
