Biography

Founded in Oslo in 1997, trio mediaeval has developed three distinct strands of repertoire: polyphonic medieval music from England and France, contemporary works and Norwegian medieval ballads and songs. The group’s initial phase was inspired by intense periods of work at the Hilliard Summer Festival in England and Germany, and subsequently with Linda Hirst and John Potter.

Trio mediaeval has given concerts and radio broadcasts throughout Europe, in the USA and Canada. The ensemble released its first CD on ECM Records in October 2001. ‘Words of the Angel’ immediately went to The Billboard Top 10 Bestsellers list and was the April 2002 Stereophile “Recording of the Month.” In January 2004 the trio released its second CD ‘Soir dit-elle’ on ECM Records. This recording was also on the Billboard Top 10 list for weeks. The release concert was recorded by Norwegian television (NRK 1) for the series ‘Megafon’, and was broadcast in May 2004. The group released its third CD ‘Stella Maris’ in September last year. On Christmas day 2005 the trio, together with Gavin Bryars and Roger Heaton, gave a concert from Härkeberga Kyrka on Swedish Television, SVT 2 in the programme ‘veckans konsert’ (concert of the week). In June 2006 the trio performed with Tord Gustavsen Trio in a world premiere collaboration concert in Harstad, at the Festspillene i Nord-Norge. Tord composed the music; ‘musical miniatures’ with lyrics by the Sufi poet Jelaluddin Rumi (1207-1273).
