Society for the Performing Arts presents Vilde Frang
Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang has been in demand since her debut with the Oslo Philharmonic at age 12 and now, at age 28, her list of concert and recital credits reads like that of artists many years her senior. Noted particularly for her superb musical expression, as well as her well-developed virtuosity and musicality, Frang has established herself as one of the leading young violinists of her generation.
Performance highlights the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Oslo Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony and the Basel Kammerorchester. In 2010 she was named the classical music talent of the year and received a grant by Statoil. In 2012 she was the recipient of the Credit Suisse Young Artists Award and made her debut with the Vienna Philharmonic under Bernard Haitink at the Lucerne Summer Music Festival. She plays a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin lent by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Freundeskreis Stiftung.
