Classical music in Lofoten
The Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival and the Lofoten Piano Festival are held every two years in the beautiful surroundings of Lofoten. The purpose of the festivals is to bring a varied classical music program – performed by international high-level artists – to the whole of Lofoten. Both festivals have received a lot of attention – both nationally and internationally – for their high artistic level.
In addition to the summer festivals, several concerts of classical music are organized throughout the year in Lofoten.
Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival
The Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival saw its light in 2004 as Norway’s northernmost festival for chamber music. The festival celebrated its first 15 years in 2019. Through its over 15 years, the festival has established itself as an institution in the region with its annual festivals.
The Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival will be held next time 5 – 10 July 2021.
Lofoten Piano Festival
As a subsidiary of the Lofoten International Chamber Music Festival, Lofoten Piano Festival saw its light in 2014 as Norway’s only piano festival. With the same artistic level as the parent festival, the festival has in a short time become a recognized piano festival among other major European piano festivals.
The Lofoten Piano Festival will be held next time in 2022.
