Aksel Kolstad (piano)
Aksel Kolstad (b. 1981) began playing as soon as he was big enough to sit on a chair next to the piano, at the age of two. At the age of 10 Kolstad performed with an orchestra for the first time, playing Haydn piano-concerto in C-major.
Kolstad has studied with Prof. Sigurd Slåttebrekk (the Norwegian Academy of Music) and Wolfgang Plagge (Greåker Music High School).
Kolstad had his debut concert in Carngie Hall, New York on October 10th 2010 to a full house with standing ovations.
