The Trondheim Soloists (TrondheimSolistene) from Norway was founded in 1988 by Professor Bjarne Fiskum, and was for many years an arena for professional concert training for string players at the Conservatoire in Trondheim. The Artistic Director today is the cellist Øyvind Gimse.
As a result of many concerts throughout Europe as well as concerts tours to the USA, Asia and Brazil, the Trondheim Soloists has grown to be an ensemble of international renown. Thanks to their innovative profile the Trondheim Soloists have received much critical acclaim and attracted attention with their combination of high standards, youthful vigour and lively enthusiasm for the music.

The orchestra's CD/Blu-ray disc "Divertimenti" is nominated for three GRAMMY Awards, 51st edition February 2009.
