Lars Anders Tomter is one of today’s most outstanding violists. He studied violin and viola with Leif Jørgensen at the Oslo Music Conservatory and the Norwegian Academy of Music, and made his début on both instruments at the age of seventeen. After continuing his studies with Max Rostal and Sándor Vegh, he was awarded a special prize for his interpretation of Bartók’s Viola Concerto at the International Viola Competition in Budapest in 1984, and won the Maurice Vieux International Competition in Lille in 1986. Since then his appearances as a viola soloist have been greeted with the highest public and critical acclaim throughout the world.

Tomter has performed with major orchestras throughout Europe, collaborating with the most distinguished conductors. He is a regular guest at festivals, including Schleswig-Hoistein, Lockenhaus, Kissingen Summer, BBC Proms, Mondseetage, Styriarte, as well as a number of Scandinavian festivals. His recordings include Walton’s Viola Concerto for Naxos (8.553402). In addition, he is artistic director of the Norwegian Risør Chamber Music Festival. Lars Anders Tomter is a professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music. He plays a Gasparo da Salò viola dating from 1590.
