Anders Torgunrud Røshol


Anders Torgunrud Røshol is a Norwegian composer who mainly works with acoustic music. Through his work, Røshol often explores the potential of contrasting musical ideas to generate new and unexpected material. His music has been performed and recorded internationally, and he has collaborated with some of Norway's leading ensembles, such as Oslo Sinfonietta, BIT20 Ensemble, and SISU percussion. His piece, "Swiveling in a Flexible Unison," commissioned by BIT20 Ensemble, was nominated for the Edvard Prize in 2022.

"The Silence of the Lilacs Fluttering", five songs on poems by Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-72), commissioned by Nordic Voices, is set to be premiered at Røshols upcoming portrait concert at the Kirsten Flagstad Festival in his hometown Hamar this summer.
