 Kim André Arnesen

Kim André Arnesen was educated at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim, Norway. As a composer he had his first performance in 1999 with Nidaros Cathedral’s Boys Choir. Since then he has written music that has been performed by several choirs.

In 2010, his first large-scale work was performed in the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim. This was a Magnificat commissioned by the Nidaros Cathedral’s Girls Choir. The performance got an overwhelming feedback leading to several new commissions. The Magnificat will be released on CD in 2014 on the record label 2L.

In 2011 his choral motet Even when He is silent was premiered during the St. Olav Festival (Olavsfestdagene) in Trondheim. The motet was commissioned by the festival and was performed during an event with the bishop of Nidaros, Tor Singsaas and the international acclaimed Norwegian actress, Liv Ullmann. The piece was also performed during the World Symposium on Choral Music in Argentina 2011 by the Nidaros Cathedral’s Girls Choir. The mixed choir version of the piece was published on Norsk Musikforlag in 2012. The piece have been performed by several Norwegian choirs and choirs in Estonia and the USA.

In December 2011, his second large-scale work was premiered. This was a Christmas work commissioned by the Trondheim Chamber Choir and conductor Norunn Illevold Giske. In 2012 Arnesen composed two a cappella pieces commissioned by the Trondheim based choir A Cappellissimo and conductor Grete Daling. Arnesen also made a version of his own Christmas Carol, Cradle Hymn, for the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, and arranged two Christmas Carols for the Nidaros Cathedral’s Girls Choir that was performed with the TrondheimSoloists.
