Ten years has gone since Sølve Sigerland participated as Norwegian representative in the Nordic Soloist Biennale with Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Andrew Litton.

His performance of Szymanowski`s first violin concerto brought Sigerland to the first rank of Nordic soloists and made it clear that he “is ready for any concert engagements” as the Stockholm newspaper “Dagens Nyheter”`s Hans Wolf expressed it. During the ten years after this triumph Sølve Sigerland has strengthened his position as an unique violin talent. However most of his time he has spent with the Piano trio he is a founding member of; Grieg Trio, today known as one of the leading Piano trios with a number of recordings : Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Dvorak and Schostakovich on EMI, Virgin Classics and SIMAX. Grieg Trio has performed in the most distinguished halls in the western world: Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall (Weill Hall) in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Schauspielhaus in Berlin, Chatelet in Paris, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and Sale Verdi in Milan.
Regular invitations to prestigious chamber music festivals and a number of music awards (Norwegian Music Critics Prize, Shell Euro Prize, The Grieg Prize, Parkhouse Award (London) and first prize in the Colmar International Chamber Music Competition) has also been given to the Grieg Trio.
