Biography

Eivind Holtsmark Ringstad is the latest talent to emerge from a new, golden generation of Scandinavian musicians. In 2016 he was chosen to join the world’s most prestigious training programme for experienced classical musicians: the BBC’s New Generation Artists Scheme.

Previously, Eivind has been selected as a Borletti-Buitoni fellow and a member of the Crescendo mentorship programme initiated by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Barratt Due Institute, under the guidance of Leif Ove Andsnes. He has also received the Arve Tellefsen Prize, the Øyvind Berghs Memorial Prize, the Karoline Prize and the Statoil Award. In 2012 he was named Eurovision Young Musician in Vienna.

In the Nordic region, Eivind’s career is on the ascendant. In the 2016-2017 season he made his debut with the Oslo Phil and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, BBC Northern Ireland, BBC Philharmonic as well as London Sinfonietta. This season includes debut in Wigmore Hall as well as performances with BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Wales.

Eivind is a prolific chamber musician and has been a regular fixture on Norway’s thriving chamber music scene for some years. He regularly appears at the Bergen International Festival but is also a regular guest at Prussia Cove and Baroniet Rosendal. He has collaborated with some of the most distinguished chamber musicians around, among them Leif Ove Andsnes, Janine Jansen, Alisa Weilerstein, Jonathan Biss, Henning Kraggerud, Christian Ihle Hadland, Lars Anders Tomter, Itamar Golan and Håvard Gimse.

Eivind was born in 1994 and he started to play the violin at the age 5, moving to the viola as his main instrument nine years later. He plays a Guadagnini instrument dating from 1768, kindly on loan from Dextra Musica.
