Josefine Opsahl – SOLD OUT

Compelling cello arrangements between tradition and innovation

A bright future is predicted for the talented and boundary-pushing composer and cellist, Josefine Opsahl, who, despite her young age, has managed to create her own unique sound in the realm of classical and electronic music and performance. She received the prestigious Crown Prince Couple’s Cultural Stardust Award in 2022. In February, you can experience the rising musician as she performs a solo concert at ALICE during Vinterjazz. The concert is seated.

Composer and cellist Josefine Opsahl, unlike few others, has succeeded in forging her own distinct sound. With a background in classical music, she eagerly explores new territories between the acoustic and electronic worlds, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation. By blending dazzlingly beautiful cello tones, effects pedals, and captivating performance, she solidifies the resonance and significance of her classical work in the current times. Opsahl works with genre-breaking, and her pieces can sound classical, electronic, cinematic, and pop-infused – always with a focus on tactility, movement, and virtuosity. She claims to process the world through her music by challenging and discussing existing frameworks and norms, with the intention of creating a better world. Alongside her undeniable talent, this has made her one of the most talked-about new names in the classical scene.

One gets the sense that the adventure has only just begun for Josefine Opsahl, who, despite her young age, already boasts an impressive catalog. She released her debut album, “Atrium” (Dacapo Records), in 2022, receiving high praise both domestically and internationally. She has composed symphonies and music for several performances and operas. Opsahl has been described as an “outstanding opera composer” (Politiken and Magasinet Klassisk), and her first opera, “Drømmedøden,” was hailed as “a musical sensation” by the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. The spring of 2023 marked the premiere of her own concerto for cello and orchestra, as well as her solo debut in the USA at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC). Not least, she has a close collaboration with the Royal Danish Ballet, and her latest ballet work will premiere at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen in March 2024.

Josefine Opsahl received the Wilhelm Hansen Foundation’s Honorary Award in 2020, the Léonie Sonning Talent Prize in 2021, and, notably, the prestigious Crown Prince Couple’s Cultural Stardust Award in 2022. At ALICE, we are honored to present the talented and emerging cellist when she performs a solo concert during Vinterjazz 2024 performing pieces from her solo debut record “Atrium”.

The concert is part of Vinterjazz 2024 – a nationwide festival taking place from February 1 to 25. More information is available at
