Risor Chamber Music Festival New York

For one week every June, the charming village of Risør on Norway's southeastern coast provides an idyllic backdrop for one of the world's most celebrated chamber music festivals. This December, world-renowned musicians from the 2010 festival, led by Co-Artistic Directors Leif Ove Andsnes and Lars Anders Tomter (pictured above), bring the magic of Risør to our shores.

Carnegie Hall has linked up with the festival organizers to secure exclusive use of performance and interview videos from this year's festival. In the lead-up to the December concerts at Carnegie Hall, we will post many of them, as well as additional interviews with Leif Ove Andsnes, and written and photographic blog posts related to the festival and to the artists.
