What a supercool festival we just finished tonight with the magnificant Trio Valentin playing Beethoven and Ravel like Greek Gods! Had a couple of funky concerts in Fredrikstad and Halden also
before hitting it off in Oslo - with a flashy style...
Thank you, everybody, for a wonderful festival at Tjuvholmen - the artistic district of Oslo! Here are some photos from a couple of the concerts!
Best festival audience 2011 goes to Berit and Berit :)

Café de Concert´s Fredrikstad Chamber Orchestra in SwedenSubmitted by aksel on Mon, 2011-07-04 19:49
@ Radio Swedish Radio P4 with Stenungsund´s cheif of tourism Björn Johnson (left) and Robert "Gretchen" Aug (right)
After performing at the Swedish Chamermusic Festival in Stenungsund last week Kolstad performed on Swedish national radio (P4) and made Stenungsund beat the big city of Göteborg in a competition in between the two cities. Read more about it here "Världspianist stod upp för Stenungsund - skickade ut Göteborg i kvartsfinalen"
Kolstad felt honored as he presented Café de Concert´s wonderful Fredrikstad Chamer Orchestra for the Swedish audience at the opening concert where Jonas Båtstrand led them through Bartok´s 6 Rumanian Folkdances, Mendelssohn violin concert in d minor (with Båtstrand as soloist) and Tchaikovskij´s String Serenade. Båtstrand and the rest of the orchestra got magnificant critics!! Kolstad also world premiered his newest piece for piano solo during that concert, "L´amour invisible". Full house and a very enthusiastic audience made the concert quite unforgettable for all of the musicians. The day after Kolstad had his solo concert at the same festival. Swedish press (Göteborgsposten) wrote this:
"Kolstad is often called to be the New Norwegian Victor Borge. I would rather call him the Franz Liszt of today"
PS: Fredrikstad Chamber Orchestra all fit in Café de Concert :D

Neighbour-concertSubmitted by aksel on Thu, 2011-04-28 16:42
Since we just moved in to this fantastic neigbourhood in February we figured it would be cool to invite our neighbours to a mini-concert yesterday with a small party afterwords :) And so we did :)
Russian, Lithuanian, Canadian, South-Korean and Norwegian people embraced the concert with, no big surprise, the wonderful Trio Valentin :) And later that evening the new Norwegian Ole Bull, Bjarne Magnus Jensen, came and performed a showpiece for us!
The history of Café de Concert
Café de Concert began a few days before the 19th of June 2003 when Aksel Kolstad together with a colleague performed live on Midt i Musikken, a classical music program on NRK radio P2. During the program, the trial concert was announced, to be held at Kastanjen restaurant on Bygdøy Allé in Oslo.
